Most people have never heard of a patent troll. I hadn’t until a year or so ago. They involve patents, which most of us know little or nothing about. But the “troll” part is easily understood. Remember the kids’ story of “Three Billy Goats Gruff”? The goats wanted to cross a bridge. But a troll stood in their way and threatened to gobble them up. The first two goats persuaded the troll to wait for the third and larger goat to come by in order to get a bigger meal. But when the last and largest of the goats showed up, he kicked the troll off the bridge and everyone lived happily ever after.
