Cisco (CSCO), Netgear (NTGR) and Motorola Solutions (MSI) formulate a new strategy in their battle with patent trolls by accusing them of racketeering. One of the trolls, Innovatio, has attempted to collect royalty payments from the users of the tech companies' networking gear, such as coffee chains, rather than the manufacturers, and has sent 8,000 "threatening" letters. That, says Cisco, breaks the law.
