I am a huge advocate of the growth of technology and I am excited to see what’s new and hot in the industry.  There seems to be something new and hot all the time and that is huge, as it allows us to advance into areas that were once considered future technologies. This is huge, especially for a techie like myself.

As we advance so does crazy litigation around every technological growth spurt, or so it seems anymore.  It’s as if we cannot go a day without hearing about another company that is being sued, has plans to sue or is settling a lawsuit in regard to a technology, copyright or patent issues.  Is this just something that goes with the territory? Will this hinder the growth of future technological advancements?  Are these lawsuits outrageous or are they justified?

Take a look at Infographic below to give you an idea of how pervasive these issues have become.
