Legal Joel Spolsky is ramping up the fight against patent trolls, the scourge of small companies and startups trying to advance technology in new and interesting ways. Sadly, while Spolsky is right on the money on everything, and even though the fight has to start somewhere, I think he - and others - are doing the industry a huge disservice by focussing entirely on pure patent trolls, without actually addressing the other side of the coin: medium and large business engaging in the same patent troll behaviour.

Rigged game

Big business bought off the government so the rules of the game would favor big business. Targeting big business by itself will not fix the problem. Getting big money out of politics will. When politicians actually have an incentive to work for the people instead of big business things will change and not a moment sooner.
