+ - UnwiredPlanet/Openwave keen to announce it is becoming a Patent Troll->

Submitted by
Fluffeh writes "Openwave, a pioneer of smartphone internet and once a major player, has just announced a "major milestone" after selling off its legitimate businesses but keeping its patent chest handy. Under its original 1996 name of Unwired Planet, the company plans to use the patents that it has in chasing down money from other more successful businesses.

"As we complete the sale of our product businesses, we will continue to focus on a multi-pronged strategy to realize the value of our unique patent portfolio," — CEO Mike Mulica."
