The real problem with trolls like this is that they have no deterrant factor. When one tech company sues another, the sued corporation countersues and they have a big two sided battle. HOwever, since patent trolls make no products that could be infringing, they can't be sued, so it becomes an even more one sided battle.

Stupid patent trolls... why can't we just get rid of all these idiots by reforming the patent system?

soon it will be impossible to start up a new company producing new technology because the patent trolls will charge so much that you wont be able to get started unless you are an already successfull multibillion dollar corporation. Goodbye small business. what bothers me is how large companies do everything they can to destroy small businesses but they themselves started out as a small business. its like they think that now that I'm successfull I'm going to make sure nobody else succeeds.

One day soon, all of the patents in the world will be held by patent trolls who produce no products. Then, no products can ever come out because they would be infringing on patents. We would revert back to a caveman like era.

or we'd all be dead, some asshole would probably try patenting breathing and eating as well.

Patent Trolls and their companies need to go the way of the Dodo.

I hate to resort to using this term, but: "Don't hate the player, hate the game".  Patent trolls can only exist in a system as broken as this one.  What's needed is a complete overhaul of patent law.  Trolls will starve to death when they have no means of abusing the system.

Yeah, I agree, just tired of hearing about the Trolls.
