InfoWorld: Numbers don't lie: Patent trolls are a plague
Submitted by J.W. Bizzaro; posted on Monday, October 22, 2012
Submitter Simon Phipps writes:

"Recently, a wide range of academic research has begun to cast light on the problems caused by the patent system, and a consensus -- that there's a real problem -- is emerging. Panelists speaking at an event sponsored by the Advisory Committee to the Congressional Internet Caucus explored the topic and mostly found the patent system wanting. Technology startups face huge challenges from companies seeking to do little more than tax their innovation using binders full of patents; technology lawyer Marvin Ammori commented that the patent system as it stands is very hard for innovative startups to navigate."
