Patent Trolls

A term that is banded around a lot is that of “Patent Troll”.

Patent Trolling is a very divisive term.

Do musicians who sue pirate mp3 services and people who sample or rip off their songs become Copyright Trolls?

Why is it considered to be different for a natural born engineer to own their intellectual property whereas a musician or writer automatically gets copyright.

I am a design engineer, I have three patents and I have tried to license these technologies. If one of the companies I’ve shown this to decides to start making these devices without license fees or giving me money when I’ve spent time designing, and researching, is it not my right to sue them?

Let’s hear less about “Patent Trolls” and more about investment by businesses in young, upcomming engineers and inventors.
