Trollers Gonna Troll
Patent trolls basically comb the internet looking for people who are committing (something akin to) copyright infringement, and then rat them out to the property owners, while suggesting that they use their own lawyers to take care of the suit right quick.
Needless to say, this is on a scale from pretty annoying to financially crippling for creative entities, and an obstacle to creativity in general.
Now a trolling company, Soverain, which has no discernible business beyond filing patent lawsuits (making them a legit trolling company) is suing their own lawyers after losing a case against some patents. Ah, the news.
