Great TED video of how Fark.com's Drew Curtis beat a patent troll and how you should deal with them if you are ever sued by these kind of leeches.

Drew Curtis, the founder of fark.com, tells the story of how he fought a lawsuit from a company that had a patent, "...for the creation and distribution of news releases via email." Along the way he shares some nutty statistics about the growing legal problem of frivolous patents.
