EFF asks Federal Circuit to stop protecting patent trolls that send demand letters


Vera Ranieri of Electronic Frontier Foundation reports an amicus brief sent to the Federal Circuit to allow defendants of patent troll litigation to clear matters by going to local courts in their own jurisdiction.  It also says “stop shielding patent trolls that send baseless demand letters”. 
 
Public Knowledge has a page on patent reform.
   
Many cases wind up being tried in East Texas, where patent litigation seems to drive the economy.
