Isn't it illlegal for a lawyer to misrepresent the law/case history to laymen?  I'd keep a record of that request and file it with the "extortion" paperwork....unless the person can cite something that'll pass a judge's muster for an honest interpretation (Or at least honest, not deliberate misinterpretation) of a real precedant, that should be grounds for disbarment.

Snapper Carr: One one hand, patent trolls are the funk on the underside of Satan's cock

On the other hand, it's Doubleclick.

I really don't know who to root for.

/maybe the resulting court case will bankrupt both

Doubleclick is an 'honest' service. They have a product and service they provide. They're shiatty and shady perhaps, but they're relatively straightforward and stick to their services, which don't really impact people.

Patent Trolls? You insulted the funk on Satan's cock.

I'd love to hear the logic on that one.

Didn't realize patent trolls could spread their trolliness by proximity.
