Patent Trolls Subtracting Value

October 4, 2011 0:42:24.286

Patent Trolls aren't just an annoyance - they cost us real money:

Lawsuits from non-practicing entities, or NPEs -- better known as patent trolls -- have cost innovators $500 billion in lost wealth from 1990 through 2010, the BU study found. The study arrived at that figure by observing patent defendants' stock prices following a lawsuit, excluding general market trends and random stock movements.

I'm so pleased that Congress just made trolling easier...
