Professor Mark Lemley weighs in on the significance of Apple's problems with patent trolls for The Los Angeles Times.

The Cupertino, Calif., company says it is the No. 1 target for so-called patent trolls.

"Given that Apple is a very innovative company that has been aggressively enforcing its own patents, I think it is significant that the company sees patent litigation overall as a problem for innovation," said Mark Lemley, a Stanford University law professor.
