Snapper Carr: One one hand, patent trolls are the funk on the underside of Satan's cockOn the other hand, it's Doubleclick.I really don't know who to root for./maybe the resulting court case will bankrupt both
weiserfireman: calling someone a 'patent troll' was actually a 'hate crime' under 'Ninth Circuit precedent' I want to see a citation for this. My understanding is that most US Courts treat name calling as opinion, exempting it from libel and slander laws. Does the little troll think he is being bullied because people have a poor opinion of him?

Memoryalpha: I find myself somewhat ambivalent about this. For one thing I have doubleclick practically first on my list of blocked sites with both noscript and adblock plus. However that he's using some of his ill-gotten gains to sue another piece of scum just amuses me to no end. I hope he wins and I hope its horrendously expensive for both of them.
