This is what is wrong with the patent system. Yes Apple uses patents as weapens. they also develop a lot of things. this Troll makes nothing. the patent system really needs to be fixed. if you patent something and do not use it or show that you are developing it into a product within 3-5 years; that patent should expire or be invalidated. This will stifle innovation. it already has. It is ridiculous that patents last 20 years. if not product exists for it it should be invalidated by 3-5 years. 20 is insane. if someone creates something with your patent that you were sitting on you should have to prove you intended to use it. if you cant prove that, you should lose the patent.
