[POLL] Is Rockstar Patent Trolling?

So Rockstar Consortium is suing Google Samsung and others over Nortel Patents acquired by a colaborative effort from Apple, Sony, Microsoft and others.

ArsTechnica did a informative post on it here:


In short the explained it as

"The Rockstar Consortium may be the ultimate example of patent "privateering"—when big companies hand off their patents to small shell companies to do the dirty work of suing their competitors. Essentially, it's patent trolling gone corporate."

I'm curious to know how Apple users feel about this. Suing Samsung is one thing, but this to me is seems...well....in bad taste.
