Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has had enough of the patent wars and has called for governments to send in blue hatted peace keepers.
Bezos told Metro that government action could be needed to bring an end to patent lawsuits in the consumer technology market,
Bezos said that society was threatened by the patent lawsuit culture.
He wanted new legislation to be introduced by national governments to stop it.
Patents are supposed to encourage innovation and we’re starting to be in a world where they might start to stifle innovation, he said, squaring a weird patent circle jerk.
Governments needed to look closely at the patent system and see if those laws need to be modified because some of these battles are healthy for society, he said.
Bezos thinks that this is the golden age of wireless devices and mobile devices and the patent wars were doing their best to kill that off.
So far Amazon has not been in any real patent wars of its own. Perhaps there is one in the works, which could get very messy.
