It is broken. The way it allows patents for stupid shit like "Red X in the upper right corner that allows you to close an application".

"Hole in top of container that allows liquid to exit container"
"Octagonal red sign with 'Stop' written on it that indicates vehicles must stop at sign".

because it allows companies to patent the "feel" of a product.

"Yep this one feels too much like an iphone can't sell it" and all your RnD dollars just went to waste
