@daleste Nowadays trolls are defined as any company or person that invents something and defends its IP. Only big companies should be allowed to invent, manufacture, and sell new products, right? Individual inventors should have no rights, correct? If you can't get the funds to manufacture your inventions, too bad. Hail to the large corporations!

@daleste obviously this company is not in the troll category as in "patent trolls". They have developed their own tech, with VC funding and funding from Intel,Cadence,KLA,Qualcomm. If these kinda startups cant defend their investment, then there is no scope for any new startup or innovation, as any big company can come in and steal tech from startups. The real trolls are companies, just exist to sue other companies without developing own tech. Eg are Interdigial, RPG, Intellectual Ventures..

Hmmm, another company trolling with patents. It will be interesting to see the outcome.
