Google brings new tools to fight patent trolls

Inventors often find themselves victimized by patent trolls with more money to pay lawyers and a patent system that is incapable of dealing with new technology. So now Google has launched an update to its search engine for patents and intellectual property that will find older patents that may cover their inventions, along with papers, books and other research that address the same thing.

It’s not quite the same a patent reform, but while we’re stuck with the present system it’s at least giving inventors a weapon that they’ve previously lacked.
