Patent trolls cost money. In 2011, US Business entities took direct losses of $29B due to patent trolls.^ It’s time to end the madness and fix the broken patent system. The Innovation Act (H.R. 3309) curtails the power afforded to patent trolls and ends many protections they currently enjoy.

    I did it a while back. I wrote to my congressman Jason Chaffetz and got a letter back where he told me he supports the Innovation Act! It was a really cool experience!

  2. It seems to me that there’s a much easier way to bring balance to the patent system.

    Just create a general cause of action for anyone to challenge a patent, and require the loser to pay the court costs for both sides.

    In other words, bring to bear the full weight of all of the class action plaintiff attorneys as counter-trolls, as it were.
