Web HostingWashington, DC –Internet Infrastructure Coalition (i2Coalition) Co-Founder and Board Chair Christian Dawson released the following statement regarding patent trolls and the Rackspace lawsuit against Parallel Iron:

“As an organization of primarily small to medium sizes businesses we understand firsthand the devastating effects patent troll lawsuits have on our industry. Patent trolls undermine the ability of i2Coalition members to deliver the innovative products and services that enable the Internet economy and create jobs. We will continue to educate our elected officials and fight the trolls until real patent reform becomes law.

We applaud Rackspace’s efforts to confront one of the most aggressive patent trolls out there. Not every company in our industry has the ability to take such action, and hopefully we can use cases like this as a megaphone to emphasize the ongoing threat posed by patent trolls and shine a light on their shameful behavior.”
