The obvious term would be "Patent Cartel".

That's good! I chose (related) syndicate because of other negative connotations.

Yep, I think "patent cartel" is the best. Before that suggestion, I was going to go with your "gang" suggestion.
"Cesspool" (and similar) is accurate, but I'm looking for something that could make it's way into normal patent policy discussions, like the way "patent troll" and "patent thicket" have.
