One response to “NDAs, Patent Trolls and Trust”

  1. Alexander Muse

    Crucifixion? I don’t think a crucifixion occurred – self-inflicted or otherwise. The whole ‘patent trolling’ game may be unsavory, but it is legal and obviously practiced regularly. The only defense for entrepreneurs is to begin to talk about the problem: revealing the methods and the actors is vital. Calling someone a farmer isn’t a crucifixion – calling someone a patent troll isn’t either. Everyone must decide how they want to create wealth for themselves and they must be prepared for the consequences of their actions.
