Il re del patent trolling torna all’attacco

Del fenomeno del patent trolling ho già parlato qui. Sostanzialmente parliamo di aziende che si occupano esclusivamente di registrare grandi quantità di brevetti per poter poi ricattare i grandi player del settore, come Microsoft, Google, Apple e molti altri.

Eolas è uno dei troll più aggressivi e difende la sua pessima reputazione con una nuova querela questa volta diretta contro Facebook, Wal-Mart e Disney:

Eolas Technologies Inc. acted on behalf of the University of California Regents today to sue Facebook, Wal-Mart, and Disney over four patents related to hypermedia display. The University of California has licensed the four patents to Eolas, who is litigating on behalf of the UC Regents. The company gained notoriety several years ago when it sued Microsoft in a lengthy courtroom battle which ended with a settlement in 2007. Eolas was initially founded to litigate on behalf of the UC system’s patents, and has earned critics for its aggressive litigation.

Questi parassiti continueranno a prosperare fino a quando la normativa sui brevetti non verrà modificata e riportata sui binari della ragione, del progresso tecnologico e della concorrenza.
