Article One Partners Pats Itself On The Back

for passing three million dollars in financial rewards to its global researchers.

See this link:http://www.crowdsourcing.org/document/article-one-partners-awards-more-than-3-million-to-patent-research-community-/20341

What exactly does “passed more than three million in financial rewards” mean anyway? What does that clever turn of a phrase mean? Why not just say “paid” three million dollars? Because they didn’t?

Also of note, it was interesting to see that Marshall Phelps is on Article One’s board. He was the IP Czar at IBM for years and initiated the IP monetization strategy at IBM that has led to the proliferation of NPE’s today, and later moved to Microsoft to help Microsoft focus on its IP.

It’s Friday, so time for the NPE Proverb – that so applies to NPE’s:

“I have come to regard the law courts not as a cathedral but rather as a casino.” – Richard Ingrams

TGIF, “patent monetization entities”!!! Cheers!
