Rah! I love patents, they tasty! Watch as I jump up from under a bridge to ask you for money on my 'not a monomoply at all patent monopoly grant'.
So a troll foreman convinced a jury to vote in favour of a troll company and a troll hack at El Register wrote a trolling bait piece about it in order to get more enraged groklaw geeks sending him bits of straw through the post. Only 3 more articles and he can make a whole man out of it!
Patents are bad, overly brought tosh that no civilised society should accept. There was no real argument (let alone proof) in this article that we should think any different, just bare faced assertions. So I don't see why I should try any harder really in my comment.
