Lawyers Or Engineers

These days it seems that businesses spend more time in court fighting over "intellectual property" than they do creating innovative products. This would a great opportunity for small companies to fill the product gap but then they risk being sued too. No matter what anyone says, nothing will convince me that "intellectual property" promotes innovation. It is just a tool to suppress competition.

All of this makes me wonder: is it cheaper to sue or to create a new product? Who costs more: lawyers or engineers?
