Was quoted today in a Reuters article written by Andrew Longstreth entitled “Ruling on licensing agreements may be bad news for cloud start-ups.”

“The ruling did not surprise many legal experts, who are familiar with the advantages enjoyed by the patent holders in disputes with smaller rivals. Mark Holmes, CEO of PatentBridge LLC, a patent broker in Silicon Valley, California, said the decision illustrates the “Beauty and the beast of patent law.”

“It’s a beauty for Microsoft and a beast for this poor little Israeli company trying to crack the market,” he said.

Holmes said the same dynamics apply to the cloud computing market: “You got all these small companies that are always trying to do something in this new terrain and the big companies are trying to corner the market.”
