Submission + - X-Plane Starts Petition Against Patent Trolls (

Hobadee writes: As previously reported, X-Plane and it's developer Austin Meyer, are being sued by a patent troll for using Google's copy-protection SDK for Android. They have now created a 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.
