Summary:
The program is directed to any organizations or individuals dealing with patents, including those developing technology, patent lawyers and trademark and patent office examiners. One way to reduce meritless patents is by soliciting prior art to enable screening of applications. Keith Bergelt, CEO of the program, is convinced that Open Source will benefit from fewer lower quality patents "that might otherwise be used by patent trolls or strategics whose behaviors and business models are antithetical to true innovation and are thus threatened by Linux."
