Dell, HP, Fujitsu and IBM have been hit by a lawsuit in the Eastern District of Texas Marshall Division famously known for its ability to expedite patent (chapter 830) disputes. The article linked to points out that it is unfair to describe anyone bringing patent suits to court as "patent trolls" - they have to have a sound case and deserve their time in court. So who exactly are the trolls? In this latest case, a company called Lochner Technologies LLC alleges the four computer vendors have breached a patent it owns, US 7,035,598 called Modular Computer System.

The suit claims that Dell breaches its patent on systems using its Remote Desktop system, including XenServer and XenDesktop thin clients.
