Re: Naming patent trolls
The problem USED to be patent monopolies. The development of the steam engine was held back for a generation because James Watt held a near monopoly with patents and had strong views about high pressure boilers. But these were people who wanted to build something - it's just that they wanted to be the only ones to build it.
The business model of buying patents purely to sue someone with no intention of developing a product is new = patent trolling.
