Keep fighting that fight, Joe. I do think it's helpful for the media to distinguish between copyists and inadvertent infringers, and I think the seat belts and alcohol analogies are entirely apt. Eric.



When enough people/companies get fed up with the assertion of a patent right, uncoupled from reality (requirement to prove copying, commercialization requirement, etc.), things will change.

Given the load that trolls are putting on the system (IV boasting $5B "under management", for example, and no signs of slowing down), it hopefully won't be long.

I like the posts about reporting on how cases are reported. Reminds me of some old Brill's Content articles. As always, nice job.
