In Lawmakers blast patent trolls, but split on parts of a key bill, Joe Mullin tells us "Rep. Brent Farenthold (R-TX) was incredulous that Whataburger, the Texas-based chain of hamburger joints, had been targeted by a patent suit. 'They make hamburgers!' sputtered Farenthold. 'They don't play in the intellectual property game ... You know there's a problem when I can't get Wi-Fi and the prices at my grocery store are going up, because they're tagged by frivolous lawsuits." Sounds like Rep. Farenthold is voting yes on the bill, and I would too if I didn't have Wi-Fi and rising grocery prices due to frivolous patent cases.
