Intellectual Ventures sues AT&T and Sprint: where is the the cream of the country’s patent bar going?

In a post titled Goliath vs. Goliath: Patent Beast Intellectual Ventures Sues AT&T about a lawsuit in D. Delaware brought by Intellectual Ventures against AT&T, Sprint, and T-Mobile. , one has the interesting text about Intellectual Ventures:

The company’s most high-profile work so far has involved the use of chemistry techniques to cook a hamburger..

The post also asserts: The America Invents Act, passed last fall, has made it more difficult for patent plaintiffs to sue.

Neither statement is correct, but the lawsuit of Intellectual Ventures is of interest.

The post also states: The Wall Street Journal reported last month on how the cream of the country’s patent bar are leaving their firms to join entities like Round Rock, a shell company backed by billionaire investment funds.

Ever since IV started full-bore down the path of patent litigation, I will never again believe the claims of any entity that it is acquiring patents "for defensive purposes only."
