Ciccatelli, 2014 (†362)Ciccatelli, Amanda. "Patent Trolls Invade the Cloud." Inside Counsel (14 Jan 2014).
- cloud computing : With the expansion of the cloud space, the move by leaders to focus on cloud for future company growth, and the shortfall of reform activity to restrict patent abuse, these trolls are making their next move: to cloud computing. ¶ As patent trolls chase profits by pressuring companies to settle rather than fight the suits -- a practice President Barack Obama has publicly likened to extortion -- many are turning their attention to the cloud. As an emerging market full of complexity and potentially foggy technological definitions, cloud computing offers a huge opportunity for the hungry trolls. (†358)
