You have a very valid argument, but there's one aspect that's missing: just like with old-fashioned racketeering, it's not a one-time expense: fold to one patent troll and you'll have to fold to all.

The SCO case was different: it was basically a Microsoft vs. Linux fight by proxy that SCO could not have funded on its own.

This patent troll is more likely to go for the low-hanging fruit, so it seems smarter for him to not make himself an attractive target.
