The side effect problem is that the patent holder is not even granted the right to use her/his patent, only to exclude other to do so. Then, she/he can only use the patent if it doesn't infringe other patents and to make a software, that doesn't mean to trade for a couple of patents but hundreds of them. I nice barrier not to spend time upon innovation...
