I think "Patent Trolling" is maybe one of the original worse offenses that can happen or in-theory would or could. Mass filing of generically bound patent applications is (again: I am not an expert) one of the best ways to protect your work in the event of an infringing suit against yourself or your software?
I will take an ease on contributing; as I am not an expert in the area; but really appreciate the feedback from everyone, especially those of you that have taken the time to directly respond in context and reply (Thanks Ed Barkmeyer).
PS: I am simply a web application developer; but there is so much great innovation to happen here and my intrigue with the IP and Patents Industry and following such (especially as I am a startup person); is a huge passion of mine. Secondly; I became interested in this list originally due to the Linux command line applications ots, libots, wordnet and link-parser.
Wonderful reading you all :)
