Patent-Trolling “Intellectual Ventures” Using Over 1,000 Shell Companies

Possibly the worst patent trolls ever. Their business model is to threaten companies into paying them for use of their (often dubious) patents, using shell companies so the action can’t be traced back to them.

Just so we’re clear on Extra Future’s position: Intellectual Ventures is a jackass company run by jackasses. The fact that it exists is an indictment of the problems with the US patent system.
