Is Congress Getting Ready to Take on Patent Trolls?
« on: September 04, 2012, 10:15:48 PM »
I found this article over on EFF and thought it was extremely interesting. Apparently the Congressional Research Service which is the investigative arm of Congress has been looking into the patent troll problem and appears about ready to act on it. This is why I have started my letter writing campaign and am trying to get others to join in as the more letters we can get out and get into the right hands the more things like this will happen.

Hopefully it would not be too far of a stretch for them to move from patent trolls to copyright trolls. Here is the link to the article and I think you will find it extremely interesting.

Greg, nice find!  I hope that you are correct that Congress's recognition of the patent troll problem will lead to their recognition of the copyright troll problem.

Unfortunately, I believe that we cannot take that for granted.  We should work hard to help Congress realize that there is also a large copyright troll issue, and that the laws need to be addressed to correct this.

It really doesn't take long to write those letters.  And it is good for the soul.

I agree with you and am currently working on this problem as well. We also do not want to forget all the other pressure that can be brought to bear on Getty through other agencies and the complaint letter writing campaign. We need to continue to advocate to people who feel as we do that would Getty is doing is wrong to send out complaint letters and inform them of the process and what the expected results can be. I greatly appreciate letters you have sent out in your support of the campaign as well.
