EFF: Open Letter to House Judiciary - Investigate Patent Trolls

Legislation that penalizes patent trolls, however, might stand a realistic chance to pass.
Next up should be some nationwide patent and copyright court; it just doesn't make sense that everyone who wants to be sure to win a patent trial just takes it to Eastern Texas and *bam!*, case won.
Third would be to remove the financial incentive for the patent office to pass patents and to have more stringent requirements.

I didn't event realize that may not exist in other countries. But of course, it's a bit of a double edged sword.
