why as there no AM3+ mini-itx motherboards?

Is it some sort of patent that Intel owns for m-itx mobos?

No. It's because the AM3+ package uses 2 chipset and other stuff that takes space on the board. Even their Micro-ATX boards are not very good for that same reason.

There are a few of them around, but I think they have all been discontinued. And there are three am3 itx boards on pcpartpicker, here ,here, and here

Big chip, big bus, big heat, small size... Just not a good combo really
