Patent ‘Trolls’ Recede as Threat to Innovation. Will Justices Change That?


Jim Johnson

President, Mr. Jim's Pizza

“I am writing today because my company has been victimized by the infamous patent troll, Geo-tag. I ask that you work on patent reform to protect companies like mine from these unfounded infringement claims. My company, MrJims.Pizza, is a franchised chain of pick-up and delivery pizza restaurants that is headquartered in Farmers Branch, Texas. We were sued alongside 50 others in the restaurant industry for allegedly violating a patent that relates to online search engines featuring our store information on a map… My company wasted time, energy, and financial resources dealing with the claims brought by Geo-tag. Patent trolls are bad for business and economic growth in Texas.”
