This is amplified by VC and other kind of investors asking if corporation has any patents before investing anything.

I know someone who had to file a couple of patents - total bs - just so that they would get funding from VC.

The idea is that if the project doesn't go to plan, they at least can ensure nobody else do it and they can recoup some money by suing anyone trying the same idea.
