Can Wikis Help Sort Out the Patent Mess?

WikiPatents – Community Patent Review says it

contributes to the US patent system by commenting on issued patents and, soon, pending patent applications.

OK, but what does the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office say? They’ll decide whether the overworked examiners — this is the charitable explanation for the garbage patents being issued all the time — will look at any of this.

Still, bringing more eyes to a problem can often bring better answers. It’s an experiment to watch.
