If the world could vote on the patent wars, no matter which side you support, we suspect most would vote for them to just go away. Providing, of course, that there was some way to keep companies from slavishly copying each other. But, since we don't get to vote on that particular initiative, the best we can do is follow along at home, and there seems to always be something new to follow. This past week, Apple got the door slammed on one lawsuit while trying fatten up another one. The pollsters never seem to get these things exactly right, do they?
