Submission + - Patent troll in Texas stymied by Minnesota Attorney General (law.com)

drew30319 writes: Minnesota has turned the tables on a patent troll.

MPHJ Technology Investments has agreed to stop contacting Minnesota businesses about the use of document-scanning in their offices. It appears that MPHJ was contacting businesses and requesting / demanding license fees for patent(s) owned by MPHJ.

Under this new agreement MPHJ will no longer contact Minnesota businesses about these purported licensing fees without first receiving permission from Minnesota's Attorney General.

Here's the article at Corporate Counsel: http://www.law.com/corporatecounsel/PubArticleCC.jsp?id=1202616582520&kw=Minnesota%20Draws%20Accolades%20for%20Settlement%20With%20'Troll'&et=editorial&bu=Corporate%20Counsel
