Jolla to ignore the US due to patent mess

At TechCrunch, Jolla’s CEO Marc Dillon explains why his company will focus on China, Finland, and the rest of Europe first, ignoring the US. “The US market is not on the radar as yet, as he says the patent landscape there ‘raises a barrier’ of entry to newcomers (he’s especially critical of overly aggressive use of design patents).” Considering the patent mess in the US is only getting worse, expect to see more of this in the future. Jolla is making a wise decision by ignoring the US – as a young technology company, you’re far better off focusing your attention elsewhere.
