Default It's a problem when a startup has more lawyers than employees

I found this article from TechDirt rather eye-opening:

"The developer's story is familiar. Once a startup crosses a certain threshold of success, the licensing demands start pouring in, followed by the lawsuit threats, followed by the tough choice between settling and fighting."

It must be frustrating as hell trying to make a startup successful when so many people out there have made a living being a patent troll.
