Burning the Ships

I just finished reading Burning the Ships: Intellectual Property and the Transformation of Microsoft by Marshall Phelps, which is a fascinating account of the transformation of Microsoft's patent power during Marshall Phelp's tenure there.  Under his leadership, Microsoft has become a significant holder of patents covering many important aspects of Microsoft's technology.  The book is well worth the read for anyone who wants to understand Microsoft's patent strategy.
