Help STOP HR.9!!!

In my opinion: Trolls is a complete misnomer! Using this word is mindset branding to scare the unaware. An inventor without resources to manufacture products and bring to market themselves often waits & works for a license agreement. If someone infringes in the meanwhile they should pay the inventor their dues for their IP. HR.9 kills enthusiasm to invent and profit from your own ideas, a cornerstone of American society and turns it into fear of frivolous lawsuits to bury their ideas by some big corporation with the resources to easily financially bury the independent small inventor. Another part of this horrible bill punishes the investors that back start-ups which chases them away from investing in new ideas, further stifling our economy.
