Abstract

This short commentary piece suggests that patent trolls may be better understood when viewed as analogous to biological parasites. Understanding patent trolls in this manner may help in explaining the patent troll phenomenon and in setting realistic expectations in the fight against them. It may also explain the difficulty in designing perfect solutions against patent trolls and why we must not be discouraged by this fact in our efforts to curb their harmful effects.
