Google: Don’t Let Trolls Win

I'm with Google on this one, let's kick some patent troll ass. While we are at it, let's kick the USPTO in the nuts too for handing out patents on some of the most ridiculous crap on the planet. big grin

Last year alone, more than 4,000 patent lawsuits were filed in the U.S; it’s the highest number ever recorded. Software and internet patents are litigated about nine times more often than other patents. Many of those suits seek to exploit low-quality software patents. Increasingly, these lawsuits are filed by plaintiffs who never did the hard work of actually creating a real product or service related to the patent claim.
