FTC chairwoman Edith Ramirez is set to follow up on the White House's executive actions and legislative proposals against patent trolls by asking the commission to sign off on a major investigation of their behavior: The investigation will result in subpoenas being sent to targeted companies, and require that they answer questions about whether they coordinate lawsuits with other IP holders and compensate original patent owners. Companies that could be targeted: ACTG, WILN, VHC, VRNG, RPXC.
