‘Cisco and Slack Are Joining Google’s Patent Network’
This piece is typical of the one sided large multinational infringer (thief) propaganda campaign. Is Roberts working for them? This is not his first such piece.
For years now since the SCOTUS eBay decision large multinationals have been ransacking and looting their small competitors. Now that we are no longer able to obtain injunctions against them they only thumb their Pinocchio noses at us saying “so sue me”, knowing full well we no longer have any reasonable chance at stopping them. For us, the patent system is all but dead. It mostly protects large thieves, not inventors.
The patent system now teeters on the brink of lawlessness. Call it what you will…patent hoarder, patent troll, non-practicing entity, shell company, etc. It all means one thing: “we’re using your invention and we’re not going to stop or pay”. It’s a pure red herring by large invention thieves and their paid puppets to kill any inventor support system. As Mark Twain said, ‘truth is not hard to kill, and (that) a lie well told is immortal’. Those who use the amorphous phrase ‘patent troll’ expose themselves as thieves, duped, or doped and perpetuate the lie.
