Submission + - Patent Trolls Attack Public Transportation 1

cpitman writes: Alleged PAE ArrivalStar is going after financially vulnerable public transportation with claims that they are infringing patents on using GPS tracking to tell riders when the next train or bus is arriving. ArrivalStar claims to have actually developed and licensed the technology, but the American Public Transportation Association says that "They don’t develop anything. They don’t produce anything. Their reason for being appears to be simply to file claims against people who go out and create things."

Is this part of a wider awakening of the public to patent abuses?
