No thanks. I support patent trolls. The tears of under-compensated developers is...like wine.
 
2013-06-27 03:49:36 PM  
I invented the concept of a shirt with an anti-patent-troll message. I want some farking money, Newegg.

A thread about trolling.  No wonder this thread is filled with idiots.  If this was real life, I would beat the crap out of each and every one of you.

I just ordered a bunch of stuff from Newegg. Maybe I should add a shirt to the order.
 
2013-06-27 04:13:20 PM  
Meh.  I can't tell whether the poor design turned me off or the inability to even see it without a watermark plastered across it.  Great idea so poorly executed it will stop others from trying to do better.

Already done that.

Cool.  I order from them now and then.  Most of the parts in this computer came from them.  I'll add one of those shirts in my next order.

Everytime I even think about trying to hook up again, I just go open the shoebox.
You know.
the one I put ALL THE FARKING RECEIPTS IN FROM THE LAST TIME I THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE A GOOD IDEA.
Every singe receipt that wavered from my hermit routine from the moment I decided to take action and try to get laid. Drycleaning, car detailing, clothes, what ever it took to move away from not getting laid up to and including the day of breaking up with her crazy ass in in that one shoebox. The grand total is written on the farking lid inside in case I think I can reconcile any of them. Unless she is on my farking doorstep, with a shoebox of equal or greater value chuck full of money, and willing to gimme a Beeg on the farking spot, then no.

I'll not settle.

Wow, people really are trying to cash in on the term "patent troll" aren't they.  I heartily laugh at any suckers who buy these shirts.
 
2013-06-27 04:46:19 PM  
Has anyone trademarked "Patent Troll" yet?
 
Al!

I was actually able to find a clean image and sent it to a site that will make custom Tshirts for cheap.  Much cheaper than Newegg is selling them for.

None of these articles have explained how someone buying this shirt does anything but give Newegg money.

That's because the original HuffPo article already explained that. The articles I linked to were to explain that Newegg doesn't have many legal bills, since their chief legal counsel is on the payroll already. The second article also explained their idea of moving forward and becoming proactive rather than defensive.

No it didn't.

It just says fight patent trolls. No explanation of how the money will be used to do that.

If it's not his intention, then he should really re-evaluate his master plan.  Because seriously, any chick that shows up with a shoebox full of emotional issues and begs to go down on him is far, FAR worse than whatever chick he's heartbroken over.

I agree, the design is godawful, and they apparently only come in small? Do they not know who accesses the internet the most and would support them?
 
2013-06-27 06:25:21 PM  
I bought a new video card this week.  I bought it from Newegg specifically because I support their fight against patent trolls.
 
2013-06-27 06:26:18 PM  
Agree, the shirt looks stupid. A better shirt would just say "FARK PATENT TROLLS" in big block caps.
 
2013-06-27 06:45:55 PM  
What good is $30,000 going to do to keep patent trolls at bay? Even a small company will spend more than that on lawyer fees just for the initial showing they aren't actually infringing.

Pretty sad even the Geek tab is almost entirely mouth breathers and trolls. This website seems to have jumped the shark sometimes in 2009.

From your link: At district court, the judge hadn't even let those invalidity arguments go to the jury, stating there wasn't "sufficient testimony" on obviousness, and that it would be "very confusing" to them.

Given the jurors were from East Texas, I tend to agree.

bacongood: It just says fight patent trolls. No explanation of how the money will be used to do that.


If you shop online at all, you should be down on your knees thanking Newegg for fighting this fight. Nearly every major online retailer, from K-Mart to Barnes and Noble to farking Amazon.com settled with these guys - which means the prices you paid from them went up to cover the money they payed to these trolls on every single single sale.

But since you asked, why don't you check out the product description on newegg.com?

All proceeds from t-shirt sales will be used to challenge bad patents targeting small businesses and entrepreneurs. Help Newegg fight patent trolls!

If you think they're lying to you, I can't help you.
