Time to Drain the Patent Troll Swamp in East Texas

In case you missed the memo, trolls are real…and a certain species of them lives in Texas. According to Lise Lunge-Larsen, author of The Troll with No Heart in His Body, “trolls are some of lore’s most fascinating and varied creatures.” To wit…“Some live under bridges, others deep inside caves. They can carry their heads under their arms or hide their hearts inside wells. They can walk across oceans and fly over mountains. Trees and shrubs may grow from their heads, and their noses can be long enough to stir soup. There are troll hags, troll daughters, and elderly, shrunken trolls. Old or young, they are quarrelsome, ugly, and boastful…” The Texas trolls, however, don’t look anything at all like Lunge-Larsen’s trolls. The Texas trolls wear suits and ties and have cell phones, iPads and laptops. And they really hate being called trolls. They prefer “Patent Assertion Entities.”
