Fight Patent Trolls. Support the SHIELD Act.

Description: 

Patent trolls are suing everyday users and creators of common technology—podcasters, mobile app developers, cafes that run Wi-Fi, and too much more. The SHIELD Act works by making the troll model of absurd lawsuits and clever settlements much more financially infeasible. Tell Congress to support the SHIELD Act and defend innovation today.
