So what do patent trolls and grey hair have to do with each other? Very little actually, except maybe it could be argued that patent trolls are one reason for premature greying from all the stress they cause. But they are the two diverse topics that were on my mind today.
I wanted to let my readers know about an article on Inc.com which I found quite interesting called The Real Toll of Patent Trolls. Author Kris Frieswick reveals the facts on Trolls, the companies that do no inventing themselves but buy patents and then get rather trigger happy with suing for patent infringement. Frieswick reports that unlike the companies they target, trolls can't be sued for patent infringement because they don't make anything. They've got nothing to lose, and make billions every year thru litigation. Particularly hard hit are infringements of software patents, putting website owners at risk.
As for grey hair, I've just finished an article about Who is Inventing the Cure for Grey Hair? So even if there is no cure for Patent Trolls, there will be for grey hair. I hope that made your day. Photo Credit: Morguefiles
