Patent trolling is bad business…for the trolls

Via a mention on Tech Crunch I found a listing on the returns of investments done by an investment company. Among the companies the fund invested in is Intellectual Ventures…a well known patent troll. The calculations show that rate of return of the funds invested in Intellectual Ventures is negative. Actually the return is -73% which makes it the worst performing investment in the portfolio. 


So trolling may not be that effective as a cash cow as some thought. Maybe the market will regulate it self and the trolls will fail??
