Groundbreaking patent-abuse settlement

"Daniel Nazer, an attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, said, “The Electronic Frontier Foundation applauds the New York Attorney General for working to protect New York businesses from abusive patent troll practices. The settlement announced today is a major step forward in the fight against patent trolls and will help protect some of the most vulnerable targets of patent trolling activities. It is extremely important that small and medium businesses that typically can’t afford expensive patent counsel not be subjected to deceptive and misleading patent letters. We hope that other law enforcers will follow New York’s lead.”"
