Submission + - Patent Troll Meets "Think of the Children" (techdirt.com)

ColoradoAuthor writes: An article at Techdirt asks, "Why Is A Charity For Abused Kids Suing A Bunch Of Tech Companies For Patent Infringement?" A group of "advocates for abused and neglected children" is a plaintiff in two patent suits against Texas Instruments, Freescale, Atmel, Samsung, and other semiconductor companies. Did someone donate a patent to the charity? Is the other litigant--Azure Networks, a frequent visitor to the Texas Eastern District Court--trying to create a positive aura around their suit?
