in the case of software, not only does nobody ever read patents, I doubt very much anyone could extract any useful programming information from one even if they tried.
My employer's legal department urges software developers not
to read patents. Patent owners can sue for bigger damages if they can show that the violator had read the patent, thus having "knowingly" infringed.
