NYC Tech’s Most Wanted Patent Criminals

  • When it comes to patent infringers, New York is more like Dodge City. There isn’t a start-up varmint in this town who has not been hit with a lawsuit, filed by civilized companies just looking to protect their innocent IP from these digital rustlers. Betabeat has rounded up a collection of composite sketches for these idea thieves. If you can identify any of them, please leave a comment, or file a report with your local ICANN authority.

    For a deep dive into the world of patent trolls, check out our new feature. The following composite sketches were created using the Faces software from IQ Biometrix, a small time patent troll who swears to have reformed its ways. Can you identify any of Silicon Alley’s most wanted?
