Totally misread the title and thought Vermont had trolled the world by passing a law against patenting. 

Anyway, interesting.  I didn't realize how much of a problem this issue was. 
Sincerely,

A great start. Now someone needs to stop the patent trolling by the big companies too...

Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

Right on. On a very unrelated note, VT is a lovely place.
