The whole sentence where you claim I'm calling them a patent troll? That one supposedly defending them from my comments? ? cough:bull:coughSo then we can agree that RC is an NPE but not a patent troll. Dang, that was worse than pulling teeth and I can vouch for that from recent experience.
Sucks when facts get in the way of another personal "I've never seen whatever" story, eh?
Perhaps sometimes it's not just about the money. Personally I hope that folks make it successful and the ads and requisite user data mining is reduced at least. In reality I think too many folks talk the talk but the walk isn't for them. I'm afraid most still want free and won't pay to play, leaving no real option for site owners and providers other than even more intrusive and effective data mining to pay for it.
The agency model wasn't the problem. It was when it was combined with a "most favored nation" agreement with Apple and evidence of a conspiracy with nearly every major publisher to set the same prices and all at about the same time.

Sure looks lie NPE=troll according to you, and clearly NOT stated that there is a difference.I've never called Rockstar Consortium a patent troll yet in most of your replies to use the term when replying to me.
