Voice your Ideas about Issued Patents

Two Americans (Peter Johnson and Kevin Hermansen in Salt Lake City, Utah) recently started WikiPatents, to provide – what they call – “public patent clarity for the world”. It fits in a growing trend to publicly voice and comment on the “quality” of the patents, issued by the USPTO (and EPO for that matter, although the new WikiPatent only relates to US patents issued). Could be a good idea for EPO as well, so as to assist the examiner in finding prior art, to be more critical of what is being issued and to hear what the “street” is thinking about their work.
