The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which technology editor/analyst Brenton Flynn and technology and media editor/analyst Andrew Tonner discuss topics across the investing world.
In today's edition, Brenton and Andrew discuss a growing trend in the technology arena. The battle for mobile supremacy continues at a precipitous pace, and the behemoths of consumer technology are waging war in the courtroom to protect their intellectual properties through arduous litigation. But this trend hasn't been limited to the names we know and love; many smaller companies have been under attack by what are lovingly known as "patent trolls," who leverage their patent portfolios in an effort to squeeze lucrative licensing fees from their targets. Investors need not worry -- Brenton has found a way that they can participate in this growing trend.
