Can someone explain to me why "patent trolling" is a bad thing? If you want more patent-worth ideas, such ideas need to be able to create value.
If the invention in the patent isn't being used by anyone, what's the harm in it? -- Pastabagel
It is utterly nonsensical to require an inventor to grant others the right to use the invention, or else they will lose their right to exclude others? And who says what is reasonable?-- Pastabagel
Furthermore, take a look around. Do you see people lining up at machine shops to apprentice? Do you see factories sprouting up everywhere? We don't make anything here, and we don't want to. The combination of NIMBY, environmental, and labor regulation has made operating a factory in the US cost-prohibitive. -- Pastabagel
But if I did invent something and attempted to do anything with it, I'd be scared of a lawsuit from Intellectual Ventures or one of its shell companies! That's the whole point! -- naju
