Patents and the ridiculous path it is taking

Amazon, Apple, Paypal and Victoria’s secret have been sued for using the 1-click technology by Cordance corp claiming they own its  patent[1]. Yet we also know that Amazon sued Apple and other companies for using the same technology declaring that

Patents is a very crucial system to give their creator of a certain technology the right to own it, but nowadays it feels like anything can be patented, whether it is worth it or not, and whether it is too simple of an idea to be patented or not.

In addition, many companies sue others for using patents they initial created or declared but never improved on the idea, worked on it or made it available for the public. Should’t there be some kind of limitation to patents? for example for forfeiting a patent if the initial owner of the patent does not work on his idea?
