Much as I hate the left wing PBS stations, I have to believe their recent report that a large group of lawyers with deep investor backing have set up a huge number of shill companies to capture patent rights. Its pretty certain that they nicely as for protection money from corporations to ensure patent infringement cases don't pop up in Marshall Texas. The only patent law reform needed is to enforce existing laws concerning this illegal Mafia like protection scheme. I would bet that a substantial number of backers are funded by Soros too, though both parties are corrupt.
