+ - WSJ: Patent troll trend "starting to accelerate"->

AdamnSelene writes: "The Wall Street Journal has an article profiling why partners in top patent law firms are leaving to start their own 'Non-Practicing Entities' (aka Patent Trolls). Apparently corporations are now approaching lawyers to sell of their patent portfolio in order to squeeze cash from their IP without the embarrassment of suing their own customers. One lawyer says that 'As patents develop from a nascent to a mature asset class, you're just going to see a whole different set of players enter this game. The curve is just starting to accelerate.'"
