updated 10:57 am EDT, Fri August 30, 2013

Ads aim to increase awareness of patent trolls

The Internet Association has joined forces with several trade groups to launch an ad campaign critical of patent trolls. The radio and print ads are running in 15 states, focusing on small businesses that are commonly targeted by patent-holding companies and non-practicing entities. "Tell Congress to stop bad patents and stop the trolls," one ad says, as quoted by Ars Technica.
