Standing up to Patent Trolls

With all that goes on around the world today it really is easy to forget about the vulture's known as Patent Trolls. It's amazing that since the advent of being able to patent a process these "businesses" have come in and raped and pillaged across the board. They really are nothing but fucking vultures extorting companies with vague process patents claiming ownership of an idea that most of the time wasn't even theirs to begin with! They just bought the patent with the intent of clobbering companies for money.

The whole point of the patent system originally was to protect the little inventor from businesses stealing their idea and the little inventor getting nothing, but now patents are being used as a knife to draw blood from anything that it can! The reality is patents are no longer protecting innovation they are stifling it!

That's why I felt I had to give special recognition to companies like NewEgg, FindTheBest (Who is actually filing a civil RICO [Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organization] suit against them), RackSpace to name a few! Please keep up the good work!
