'Trolling Effects' Launched!

 The Samuelson Clinic is excited to be a supporting partner of the new EFF project Trolling Effects, a resource for those who have been targeted by patent trolls--just launched--check it out!

Trolling Effects is a resource to empower would-be victims of patent trolls through a crowdsourced database of patent demand letters and a clearinghouse for information on the troll epidemic. The site allows demand letter recipients to post the documents online, find letters received by others, and research who is really behind the threats. The site also features comprehensive guides to the patent system and a blueprint for patent reform. Journalists, academics, and policy makers may also access Trolling Effect's data for researching the patent system.
