+ - Patent troll targetting users of scanners; wants $1000/employee->

earlzdotnet writes: "A new patent troll is in town, this time targetting the users of technology, rather than the creators. They appear to hold a process patent for "scanning a document and then emailing it." They are targetting small businesses in a variety of locations and usually want somewhere between $900 to $1200 per employee for "infringement" of their patent. As with most patent trolls, they go by a number of shell companies, but the original company name appears to be Project Paperless LLC. Joel Spolsky said in a tweet that "This is organized crime, plain and simple...". I tent to agree with him. When will something be done about this legal mafia?"
