I’m pleased to post the first show in the summer quarter, Show #142, June 29, my interview with Prof. Michael Risch of Villanova University School of Law. Mike discussed his article Patent Troll Myths, forthcoming in Seton Hall Law Review. Patent trolls are getting increasing attention as the parasite of the patent world, entities that buy patent portfolios for the express purpose of bringing actions for patent infringement. We discussed the empirical research that Mike did to identify the who and what of patent trolls, which lead to some surprising findings. I enjoyed the conversation and expect to see more of patent trolls in future shows!
