Drew's article had the flow of a typical Fark comment/headline in the politics tab.

Way to go Drew!

Drew's patent troll talk wasn't long enough to warrant highlights.

"I got sued, I said whatever, they said how much to settle, I said how about nothing, I'm so clever ha ha ha!"

Still looking for the death.... I was hoping that patent trolls were actually putting hits on people... cause then we could shut them down.

/Forgive me if I missed it in the article even though I looked at it twice... I am 5 IPAs deep

pudding7: Drew's patent troll talk wasn't long enough to warrant highlights.

Drew makes a good point but is weak on content.

Legal fees man. He hinted at the telcom industry where Apple appears to have enough money to out lawyer the competition. When I talk with people who work with corporate legal departments the one thing I keep hearing is 'it's just an ongoing game you have to play'. But there it's not just patent trolls, it's also liability trolls, class action trolls, etc.

Some countries don't have problems like this because of the loser pays system, where if you sue someone and lose you have to pay them back all the legal fees they had to spend defending themselves against your frivolous claim. In order for that to work we would have to keep big money out of the courtroom.

And you'd have to pass a law for that. And you won't do that until you take money out of politics.

It's OK. I understand conservatives think money = speech, so I'm sure he has no problem with that.
