Submission + - Patents Google bought from IBM are "weak"->

holy_calamity writes: "Slashdot noted in September that Google had bought 1023 patents from IBM. Now IP analytics firms IPVision says they're a "mixed bag" of mostly unrelated patents that won't be much use in defending against competitors such as Microsoft or Apple. Patents are most useful when they are tightly linked into clusters by references, such that they cover every angle on an idea, something Google's new collection lacks. Is the search giant clutching at straws in its bid to arm itself against litigious competitors?"
