Steve Wozniak on patents

In this clip from last week's Apps World conference, Steve Wozniak expresses his views on technology patents, explaining how he encountered patent-related issues in the early days of Apple. In his opinion, it is difficult to determine "which parties are to blame" for patent wars and he sympathises with the issues that the patent system causes for small developers. I'm sure his sentiment that "sometimes it boggles my mind that it can even be patentable" will be shared by many programmers in particular...!
