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.

Too bad Aureal itself wasn't a very exemplary company... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media_Vision#Financial_scandal (and what possibly contributed to its second bankruptcy, as Aureal, investors being cautious)
