Re: wait wat
Patent troll = company that paid me for my patent and then tries to market it.
University = I pay taxes to fund a researcher to work on a problem. University then owns IP and patents it, University's IP exploitation office then stops me using it. Ironically they also stop the researcher who had the idea using it themselves.
One of the reasons I stopped working for universities is the quarterly rounds of slick-suited IP specialists going through the lab demanding a list of anything patentable and forcing ever more restrictive contracts on your ownership of any ideas you have.
