Die, patent trolls, die. This is a public service announcement on behalf of the tech-using world, who is sick of this kind of crap.

Indeed. I find myself in the odd position of rooting for Capitol One. It's heartening and satisfying to learn the judge had the wisdom to see these patents for the nothing they were and to prevent this case from going to a jury trial. Had it gone before a jury, I'm not so confident the outcome would've been as good.

It was interesting to note, in Ars' writeup, that several of IV's much-touted "inventors" are themselves patent lawyers.
