Washington Times criticizes lack of patent rights, but what about the trolls?



The Washington Times has an op-ed, July 24, by Jon Kyl and Joshua Wright, “Preserving American industrial competitiveness” with the byline “It depends on strong and reliable patent rights”, link .

The article suggests that companies are infringing on patents rather than negotiate for “fair licenses” (what is called “efficient infringement”).
  
But the article doesn’t talk about the issue of patent trolling, which is a terrible issue with “abstract processes” and sometimes software patents.  So what about EFF’s “stupid patent of the month”?
