It looks like even online photo contests aren't immune to trolls. Let's hope that they stay away from us.

Hopefully the trolls noticed that Drew will fight back from the last time fark was attacked by patent trolls.

Drew should file an amicus brief noting he has prior art on online photo contests since Farktography dates to May 2005, and the patent was filed in 2008.

Looks like the case ultimately got dropped when the patent troll turned tail and fled. http://www.infozine.com/news/stories/op/storiesView/sid/61939/
