Is Yahoo Going to Become a Patent Troll?

Ewww! From Backchannel: Will Yahoo Become a Patent Troll? “Let’s state the obvious: Starboard is not in this game because it wants to restore Yahoo to its glory as one of the fearsome horsemen of tech. Do not look for Jeffery Smith to coo over slides celebrating Mayer’s achievements in mobile revenue, or obsess over the design of a new weather app. This hedge fund is not about putting a dent in the universe, a goal to which techies often aspire, but about putting bulges in its partners’ wallets, a goal to which hedge funds always aspire. The question I’d like to explore is just how it will go about doing this.”
