Senior MS Attorney Joins Acacia

Robin Wauters reports at thenextweb.com that Paul Bawel, recently a Senior Attorney at Microsoft, has joined Acacia:

Wauters is no fan of Acacia: “Acacia Research Corporation one of the most litigious and notorious patent trolls wasting valuable space on this planet, today announced that it has rounded out its management team with the appointment of Paul Bawel as Vice President.” Ouch.

Note the new name “patent hoarder” for NPE’s in that article. That doesn’t seem particularly helpful or descriptive.
