Patent trolls are legal. Can one be nailed for extortion? One man is betting yes.
I believe in IP rights but patents cannot simply be about Ideas… There needs to be focus on the execution of that idea and improvements should be registered to validate time and originality.
You had an "idea" for something, I actually not only "made it hapen" but in a more effcient and unique way and I need to "pay you". there is something wrong with that.
