I hope you understand I cannot name my own clients.
We always get fed this line after the other one about plucky inventors standing their ground. Meanwhile, it looks like the example fed me by one of my MEPs back in 2004 (or so) to justify software patents may have referred to a company whose business model appears to be litigating other companies into bankruptcy using patented ideas from their failed product.
So excuse our skepticism when we also see the more typical outcome for small companies trying to ship real products.
