Chief counsel for Verizon Wireless Randall Milch thinks the current patent wars between a large majority of major players in the US smartphone market have gone too far. So far, in fact, that Milch is appealing to President Obama for assistance in heading off rulings that could force the ban of sales of many popular devices. Seeing the negative impact of such, the thought is that Obama should take a stance against banning products outright and overturn any decisions to that effect. It is Milch’s belief that companies should only have to pay royalties, if anything, to the winning parties of ongoing patent lawsuits.
