Anyone who attempts to assert their claims without demonstrating willful infringement.  If one monkey could do it, and another monkey did it, we don't need to award a government monopoly to the first monkey.

I don't listen to either of them THAT often, but I'm having a hard time seeing how Carolla and Maron together on a podcast would work well. Both can sure talk a lot but their minds work in totally different ways.

I'm picturing the two of them talking over each other for twenty minutes at a time without even realizing it; Carolla perhaps ranting about SoCal building codes and regulations while Maron does some stream-of-consciousness exploration of his own neurosis.

A parent troll is someone who either owns or purchases a patent and then attempts to extort money from people by making claims of infringement beyond the stated protection of the patent against people they know don't have the money to fight the claims.

Personal injury attorneys perfected this method years ago - sue someone and make the cost of legal defense so high that the defendant will settle the claim even if it has no merit just because it's cheaper to do so.

Love the Adam Carolla podcast. He gets a little repetitive at times, but I find most of his stuff to be pretty damn funny. I have a two hour commute to work everyday, the podcast is one of the few things to keep me same on that drive.

Love him or hate him, he's doing a great thing here. If this podcast goes down, these arseholes will go for the podcast you enjoy next.

I've followed Adam's career since Loveline. I love his podcast and a ton of others.

What am I going to do if they get shutdown? Listen to the radio? I'd rather read the phone book!

I had a long commute for a while.  If you haven't picked up "Hollywood Babble On" from Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman, it's a podcast recorded with a live audience (mostly) every week.  All they do is rag on the crowd, people who email in, celebrities, and various other bits.  Some weeks are better than others, but it's a great show to listen to while driving.

I like his new show as well, and yes, the show should be an hour.  It needs more showing the house being fixed right while insulting the bad contractor the whole time, sometimes directly and sometimes like he isn't right behind them when they rip into him.

I still hate the contractor that was still telling the family they should've paid more money if they wanted the job done, after the show made him help with finishing the job.  I get surprises that can raise the cost because it was an unseen problem in the walls, but wanting more money because the tile work was done wrong the first time is on the contractor to pay.  I do appreciate the two that decided to get out of the business when they learned they have no idea what they were doing.

Agree on all accounts. Yes I meant too short in my original post.. "Short" never made it out (alcohol like typing)..

Definitely needs more detail in the work in the house.. They could make it into a sarcastic asshole version of This Old House..   Keep it legit repairs wise but get the comedy from treating the contractor like an asshole.

It's worth it, oddly enough not for Kevin Smith.  Ralph Garman is a humor DJ based out of LA and an occasional actor and he's the best part of the show.  I'm not sure how far back the downloads go, but unless you really like podcasts, the first three months or so were a little awkward until they found their footing.

If you want a great episode to start with, #126 is the first one they did after they had a falling out with Jon Lovitz (of SNL fame) and had to leave his club where they had done the podcast previously.  It's not only hilarious, it perfectly encapsulates the pettiness and banality of the entertainment business.  Plus, Garman's temper tantrum is epic.  I think they were ultimately fighting for a 20% share of $5,000 each week.  It sounded like on Lovitz really needed the money.

Smith also had a podcast on his network from Katie Morgan, the porn star.  I don't think it's on anymore but you might be able to download old episodes.  It's lower key, but they answer sex questions from emails and tell stories about doing porn from the actors perspective.  It's perfectly decent background noise.

And I really like Jay Mohr's podcast, Mohr Stories.  He is a surprisingly good interviewer, but it's not always a funny podcast.  Usually when he has people on they go to dark places.  His first podcast with Bobby Lee ended up as a 45 minute conversation about a creep who molested Lee when he was a child because the creep had a shed full of candy.  It took me almost 15 minutes to realize Bobby Lee wasn't joking about the whole thing.  But if you don't want to listen to all of them, just search his podcast for "Daryl Wright" and listen to those.  Daryl Wright is farking hilarious.

yeah, LOVE Mohr Stories.  an entertaining mix of the hilarious (Daryl "Vodkatime" Wright, JOHN DIMAGGIO), the incredible (David Lee Roth, Perry Farrell, Duff McKagan), to the compelling (sheesh, where to begin)...I was bummed when they went from 2 a week to just 1.  I think I've only missed one, Houston rapper Bun B, because I just flat had no interest.  but at the same time, there have ben dozens of times when I might have just thefaintest idea who teh guest is and end up becoming a huge fan. like when he had Aisha Tyler on, I had no idea whatsoever who she was, and this was circa season 2-3 of "Archer".  off of her "sight unseen" appearance, I began watching ARcher and am now a huge fan of her and the show.

Mohr Stories.  check it out.

Requiring willful infringement would render patents meaningless.  Take for instance someone putting patented information on a website that allows people to construct the patented object.  All those people who use the website could not be hit for patent infringement because they willfully infringed on the patent because they had no knowledge of the patent.

I lol'd when I read that.  I tried listening to Carolla the other day on Joe Rogan's podcast and that's exactly what it was.    Just substitute Maron's stream-of-consciousness ...,   with Joe Rogan's psychedelic conspiracy theories.   I don't think I lasted 5 minutes.
 
2014-03-29 12:28:58 AM  
Their linked page describing the patent troll suit shows the YouTube clip of Drew's TED talk from a few years ago. The rather simple solution Drew describes is that he asked the plaintiff to provide visual proof of the patent violation, which of course didn't exist.

Can't Adam just have his lawyer do something similar? The text of the patent is rather specific and drawn out (linked just to show how long it is; trying to read it might make your head hurt), and I would assume it might be impossible to show that Carolla's group violated this entire patent.

In his talk, Drew says the burden of proof is on the defendant. As far as I know, it's always on the plaintiff, but the defendant certainly has the option to prove that the plaintiff is talking out of his ass.

There was a WTF with them both a few weeks back discussing the issue, and Maron helping Carolla with raising defense funds.  It worked well, they knew what had to be communicated and it did go off the rails.
