Jim Figliulo, CEO of Heather Chicago and Heather New York, talks about a previous company he started but then had to shut down due to a conflict with an uncooperative patent holder. "We thought, "can we negotiate with him?", [there was] no negotiating. Turns out this guy had 47 patents, none of them were working. So he's the definition of a patent troll. This was all new to me, and it was devastating."
