Hands off their inventions

Necessity is the mother of invention, but so-called “patent trolls” seek to separate mother from child. That’s why Frank Lukasik, a semiretired patent attorney in The Villages, has become an outspoken advocate against unnecessary patent litigation. And he’s not alone in his fight, with Congress and other organizations positioned to attack this form of patent infringement. “I think it’s crazy,” said Lukasik, of Sumter Place. “It’s a way of eliminating the independent inventor with fear.” A patent troll, or a patent assertion entity, is an individual or firm that goes after legitimate patent holders by buying obscure or dubious patents, then threatening to sue innocent patent holders for infringement, Lukasik said.
