Re: We need a patent court

Especially in areas of chip designing where people who are unable to build or design a chip suddenly seem to have a patent on how something works by purely dreaming it up

The LTE patents in question are algorithmic, not a certain type of hardware design, so there is no "chip designing" in question. Even where chip designs are in question (like U of Wisconsin suing people over particular chip design techniques) they are just implementing algorithms in hardware.

You could demonstrate these algorithms with a 6502 if you were willing to wait long enough for the result.
