ArrivalStar Smacked By Prior Art?

Perhaps the most odious Patent Troll to many is ArrivalStar;  suing cash-strapped government entities in the U.S. from Luxembourg doesn’t gain many friends. Now David Alpert reports in greatergreaterwashington.org that “The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has found prior art which may prove the patent invalid, and has asked the US Patent and Trademark Office to reexamine the patent.”

Patent Troll haters (and taxpayers) can only hope.
