    Companies like lodsys should be wiped off the face of the earth.

     They will be now that Apple has wind of this. I’m pretty sure that trying to gut their cash cow, Apple will probably go after lodsys and make an example out of them.

    As long as lawyers are in the majority of elected official,  we will never see an end to stuff like this.  Most lawyers are parasitic scum.

     Should read “Dragon by it’s tail”, even I caught that, and I’m rather dumb.

  • gareth edwards

     I’d like to see that happen.

     Apple will win. Maybe not always with other large tech companies, but with a company like this? Surely.

     “It’s” is a contraction of “it is”. “Its” shows possession without using the apostrophe.

    Call it what you will…patent hoarder, patent troll, non-practicing entity, etc. It all means one thing: “we’re using your invention and we’re not going to pay”. This is just dissembling by large infringers to kill any inventor support system. It is purely about legalizing theft.

    Prior to eBay v Mercexchange, small entities had a viable chance at commercializing their inventions. If the defendant was found guilty, an injunction was most always issued. Then the inventor small entity could enjoy the exclusive use of his invention in commercializing it. Unfortunately, injunctions are often no longer available to small entity inventors because of the Supreme Court decision so we have no fair chance to compete with much larger entities who are now free to use our inventions. Worse yet, inability to commercialize means those same small entities will not be hiring new employees to roll out their products and services. And now some of those same parties who killed injunctions for small entities and thus blocked their chance at commercializing now complain that small entity inventors are not commercializing. They created the problem and now they want to blame small entities for it. What dissembling! If you don’t like this state of affairs (your unemployment is running out), tell your Congress member. Then maybe we can get some sense back in the patent system with injunctions fully enforceable on all infringers by all inventors, large and small.

    For the truth about trolls, please see

    I’m inclined to agree with you — you are rather dumb.

    It’s correct as it is.

    Why don’t you pick up a book on grammar and punctuation before you try to attack someone over theirs? I’d recommend “Eats, Shoots & Leaves” by Lynn Truss, or the ever-reliable “The Elements of Style” by Strunk and White.

    Learn yourself something and get some o’ dat der edumacation that’s all the talk of dat flim-flammin’ interwebs.

    It’s vs. Its
