Lastly, a patent box would stimulate software developers, including game developers, to seek patents on their games. Imagine you create a wildly successful game and, before you know it, you make $1M in sales on Apple's App Store (we know, that's a "good" problem to have, right?). Well when it comes time to pay Uncle Sam, you're looking at a 35% tax rate, or $350,000 in taxes. Imagine, under a patent box system, if your taxes were only 10%, or $100,000! You just banked an extra $250,000 in real money. How about them apples.
