Apple should be forced to lodge a $1m bond with every patent it lodges.

If the patent is not granted they lose the bond.

If the patent is overturned later (due to "prior art" etc) then they lose the bond and face an additional $1m penalty.

How about all companies have to do this? Other companies that file many more patents (Samsung, IBM, etc.) would be more careful then.
