They have now created a Whitehouse.gov petition to "Make Patent Trolls Pay All Costs Associated With Their Frivolous Lawsuits If They Lose" and are asking the community to sign it. It currently has almost 2500 signatures, but needs many more before the Whitehouse responds to this very important issue.
