Trends in the Patents System

After receiving the title of IBM Master Inventor I have been asked to
give a short presentation the Haifa Research Lab on a subject that has
to do with patents. I have decided to give a presentation on my personal
classification of patents.

This presentation will be  on trends I see which transform the patent
system into a burden on the IT industry.  In it I will explain the
