Schoenbaum is a particular fan of Trolling Effects, a site run by a consortium of organizations including the Consumer Electronics Association, the Electronic Frontier Foundation, and the UC Berkeley Law School. Trolling Effects is designed as a one-stop shop for basic information in patent law and technology. Alongside primers on patent law, the site offers one very important resource. The centerpiece of Trolling Effects is a recently launched archive of legal threats from patent holders that allows sued companies to easily compare and contrast anything they have received.
