I've read all about this but recently sat down and watched Drew's TED Talk. It's amazing how so many bigger companies caved into settling instead of offering them what Fark did: "How about NOTHING?!"

As the article says it all comes down to money. It is cheaper for them to settle. If only there was some entity that was set up to protect the public good that could fight such trolls.

X-plane is current one standing up against the trolls.

The really stupid thing on the X-plane case is that They are being sued for using a Google API that the troll claims to own the patent on, and Google doesn't want to help even though thousands of other apps use the same Google API.
