    Patent Trolls Already Targeting Amazon's Kindle Fire Tablet


    It looks like the patent Trolls are already itching for some "toll collection fees" to allow the Amazon Kindle Fire to pass over their bridge. Amazon has reportedly already been targeted by a lawsuit from patent licensing firm Acacia Research. Lest you think that Acacia Research is anything but a troll, keep in mind that they do not produce or sell an product of their own. They are simply a company that profits by purchasing intellectual property and then licensing it out through a variety of subsidiaries. The firm claims that Amazon’s Kindle Fire infringes on several of its patents. One supposedly covers graphics on a touchscreen that respond when a user “writes” on said screen. Another is titled “System And Method For Displaying And Manipulating Multiple Calendars On A Personal Digital Assistant.” This same company currently has several unsettled lawsuits pending with a host of companies including Apple. Basically, this company exists solely to abuse and profit from the broken patent system. Perhaps the newest changes to patent law will eventually lead to the demise of this particular bridge troll.

    The courtroom is the new trenches????
    Anytime someone dares me to walk a mile in their shoes I do it! Because, hey free shoes and I am now a mile away from that person!

    Hatred is by far the ugliest trait any human can possess (think about it)

    Has there ever been a product that hasent been the target of so many patent lawsuits? Kinda makes me scared to even try to invent, innovate anything. I'll stick to trying to invent, innovate something that can get sold on those infomercials...lol

    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.

    If you always seem to have drama in your life, you are probably the one causing the drama.
    If customer service representatives or restaurant servers always seem to be rude to you, you are probably the one being rude.
    If your computer always seems to be freezing up on you, you're probably doing something wrong.

    In my experience, drama begets drama, rudeness begets rudeness, and ineptitude begets ineptitude.

    My goal is to invent something and make it on to the show Skark Tank because those guys can just buy my product off me for like a cool Billion dollars and they can deal with getting the patents and what not.
