    So trolls make strange bedfellows do they?

    Why all the Hub-bub? It's not as if NPE's are the only ones enforcing patents, whether questionable or not. Is a patent right any less valuable or valid if the patentee is an NPE as opposed to a practicing entity? Many NPEs are NPEs simply because they cannot afford to take their technology to market or are dominated by other patents. If Congress passes the SHEILD Act, perhaps they should also pass one called SIPA (Small Inventor Protection Act) to protect sole and small inventors from big corporations who blatantly ignore the patent rights of the sole and small inventors knowing they don't have the money to enforce the patent rights.
