Ray Niro Offers $5,000 for Identity of Author of ?Troll Tracker? Blog
By Lee Gesmer
It appears that infamous Chicago patent attorney Ray Niro has offered $5,000 for anyone who will identify the author of the Patent Troll Tracker, which Niro apparently believes has made uncharitable comments about him. The anonymous author of the Patent Troll Tracker blog takes this in good humor, describing the offer as a “bounty” and stating:
I have never had a bounty on my head before (see also blog post here). And I can’t imagine why Ray Niro would pay $5,000 to find out who I am. I emailed him to find out (from the corner internet cafe, heh). He didn’t respond. Ray: if you up it to $50,000, can I collect the reward? . . .
Yes, Ray Niro has decided to offer $5,000 to find out who I am. According to the article, he wants to know “who is saying all those nasty things” about him. . . .
PS To my very few friends, family, and colleagues in the know, if you’re reading this, please don’t call Niro and collect the bounty. That would be tacky. OK, thanks.
Wow, who knew patent law could be so interesting? More on this controversy (huh?) here.
