Podcaster troll settles out of court, probably collects nothing but defendant still has to pay his own fees

Electronic Frontier Foundation has a story today by Daniel Nazer, “The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of Adam Corolla’s Settlement with the Podcasting Troll”, link here
The settlement is “confidential” but it seems almost certain that Corolla will not pay Personal Auto a penny, but will not be able to recover his own legal fees.  

That’s why we need a “loser pays” bill, and some kind of mechanism to order defendants fees paid for patent suits levied in bad faith.
