So, I'm a patent troll. I have no actual implementations, but lots of patents. So I opt for patent protection, and who cares about copyright. How has this scheme harmed me at all?

If you want to be able to opt for one or the other on a case-by-case basis, you'd need something like, if I opt for copyright protection on my code, then it automatically does not violate anyone else's patents. That seems like a hard sell.
