patent litigation

I'm more or less agnostic on the patent troll issue. Although I recognize the inefficiency problem that their business model creates within the economy, nevertheless the NPE model is profitable, effective, and a legal exercise of IP rights. The problem is a systemic one; when NPEs win, on average, three times the damage awards that practicing entities reap from patent litigation, you can't blame them for suing as much as possible. It seems to me that one of the best ways to combat the NPE problem is to disincentivize them by reducing their potential winnings from enforcement actions. So far, however, only a few courts seem to have taken the reasonable-royalty approach.
