It would be interesting to see how much it cost to pay the troll, or to do all the legal work
for getting the prior art in the format that the PTO requires it to be for it to be
'considered'. You can't just give them news articles and papers or code.. you have to vet it,
get depositions, put in the legal framework, yada yada yada (its the reason that patent
lawyers charge quite a bit per hour.).
I wonder if you have to pay challenge fees (well if I was the PTO and trying to get my piece
of the pie off of this racket.. I would definately make sure there were fees).
