Submission + - Whitehouse petition to make patent trolls pay (

JMJimmy writes: The patent office has approved countless ridiculous patents that are clearly non-sensical or based on obviously long-known ideas, making it easy for trolls to collect ridiculous patents and use them as their flimsy excuse to file outrageously expensive lawsuits.

This petition seeks to make patent trolls think twice about suing. Perhaps it ought to be expanded to include copyright trolls!
