Wait, what? Why?

@Tommmcatt Be Fat, And That Be That: As Mellbell notes, huge issue in the Geek Community. First became prominent when Amazon patented “one-click ordering”. Recently, a patent troll tried to sue iPhone app developers for using Apple’s in-app ordering system.

It’s not unlike DMCA trolls trying to sue blogs for copping stories — most targets are financially unable to put up a fight.
