    From the weekly Mycroft newsletter:

    Mycroft is now involved in five separate legal actions against Patent Assertion Entities (PAE). Needless to say, this is annoying and something that should be talked about, but we have been enjoined from speaking in one of the lawsuits so in an abundance of caution we haven't been speaking about any of them.

    At the same time, I’ve found myself struggling to explain the patent assertion story to people not steeped in legal jargon.

    I decided to tell Mycroft’s story in the most accessible and least threatening way I could: I wrote a children’s book. A harrowing tale of knights and heroes fighting for truth and justice. Mycroft and the Patent Trolls addresses a complex topic in an accessible and fanciful way.

    The book is also a fundraising mechanism for our patent litigation. 100% of the proceeds of the book will go toward defending our open source community from the PAEs efforts to extort us.
