Patent troll called out as a “sham” by judge (finally someone called it like it is)
A Texas company named Network Protection Services collects patents then goes around suing other companies for patent infringement. It attempted to sue security vendor Fortinet, but when the case was bumped up to a California district court judge, Network Protection had to explain what it does as a company.
Network Protections dropped the suit instead of defending its patent trolling practice. Cheers to the judge for calling them out as a sham, and here’s to you for being a turkey, Network Protections.
