It's kind of like the "slip and fall" lawsuits. Cheaper to pay the blood
money than fight the asinine suit in court. I remember when I lived in
California (20 years ago, or so) a regional building supply company posted
notices that any "slip and fall" lawsuits would be vigorously fought in
court and that they had set up a fund specifically for this purpose. The
year after posting the notice, they didn't have a single lawsuit.
It's time for corporations to form an anti-patent troll fund and join
together to fight patent troll leaches in court. It's either that, or see
themselves slowly bleed to death paying blood money to these worthless
parasites and extortionists.
