Uhhh, Judge Marsha Pechman's totally unfounded decision was overturned by the C.A.F.C. on appeal. Why don't you post THAT on your blog?

And why don't you take a look at www.CLIK.org and www.ResourceNetworkInternational to see what this particular "extortioner" and "troll" does with most of the money he collects.

Mitchell Medina is a fraud - he is back at it again. I question his counsel - Jean-Marc Zimmerman - what firm is he with any way, Zimmerman & Levi, Zimmerman, Levi & Korsinsky - he's not even listed on the firm's site - it all seems very, very odd to me.

HELLO MITCH MEDINA
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW WHAT THIS TROLL HAS BEEN DOING GET IN TOUCH. HERE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS HE HAS BEEN DOING
TESTING A DRUG ON AIDS PATIENTS IN KERICHO
EMPLOYING AND DISMISSING PEOPLE AT WILL BECAUSE HE CAN BUY JUSTICE FRO THE MONEY HE EXTORTS.
BUT A DAY TO DAY ACTIVITY CAN BE OFFERED. HE WAS CORRUPT IN KENYA TRYING TO BUY POLITICAL GOODWILL UNTILL THE GOVERNMENT SENT HIM PACKING BECAUSE HE IS AN OPPRESSOR.
Raila does not need you.

I would like to publicly disclaim as fraudulent the post made under my name questioning the affiliation of Eon-Net's attorney, Jean-Marc Zimmerman. I did not make this post, neither do I know who did. However, the fact that some fraudster would use my name to accuse me and/or my attorney of fraud speaks volumes about the kind of people who line up to accuse Eon-Net L.P. of.... something or another.

Very truly yours,

There are a multitude of enforceable, valid and beneficial ideas that are patented by individuals who personally lack the financial or manufacturing ability to market those patents. They thus must wait for somebody who has those abilities to "partner" with them through licensing. Or, they may choose to Partner with a "Patent Troll" to derive some benefit. Because of the abuses of some "patent trolls", a negative connotation has been applied to all such companies.

The solution is not to eliminate patent trolls but to place sanctions upon those abusers, which is ALLOWED under Rule 11. That said, Sanctions are not a blanket defense for potential infringers either. While I don't know anything about Eon-Net or its patent, the CAFC decision was the right decision in this case. To apply the sanction Rule in as cavalier a manner as the trial court did would be to completely stifle the most important part of the patent law, that ANYBODY with a good idea may profit from that idea and not just "manufacturers". Not a very popular notion these days, but legitimate "Patent Trolls" have a valued place in the system also.
