As soon as you sell general purpose software, you need patents, thought
they are a pain, waste of time and money, and even most people don't
like them. But you need them in commercial environment: First, to get
investor's money. With patents you "prove" the investors that you're
innovative. Investors usually know little about technology, they know
only about money and numbers (while we (engineers/developers) don't know
about money ;)). So they need some measure for your technology and the
easiest are the number of patents you own.
Further, to protect you at least somehow against other companies which
could sue you: you violate their patents, they violate yours. Cold war
played with patents ...
