    ..or stupid. Or so smart he fakes being stupid so he can't be labeled as a liar.

    Either way he's scamming people out of their money.

    yea.. I know. ...


    synopsis...

    He went on stern begging for more money. Claiming a patent troll was suing him for infringing upon a patent that they had simply purchased. Says he needs a million bucks to hire lawyers to fight it.

    Truth is, their is no patent troll. It is a company that created and owns a patent for using playlist style content dissemination. It may be a janky patent but it is theirs. No one bought it, there is no third party. There is no "patent troll" involved.

    Apple had fought the holders of the patent in court claiming it was something you couldn't patent and lost. So now Apple pays a fee to use the patent in itunes. So does anyone else who uses an auto play/playlist that infringes on the patent.


    Carolla sounds like a stooge and a schister literally saying that he has no idea what the patent is really about or how it works but needs money to fight it.

    Everyone on Adam's show talks very slowly. Usually that means they have nothing to say.

    i used to like him. but it seems like every time i hear him interviewed, he becomes more and more of a misogynist. also, he always has a chip on his shoulder about money. he seems to hate wealthy people-- whether they worked hard for it or not-- yet seems to always yearn for more money. he just seems like a walking contradiction.

    Thanks for posting this. I can't stand Carolla, but I really thought there were patent trolls targeted anybody who made money podcasting. This makes me feel a bit better.

    And what idiot donates money so that Carolla can "fight" to make more money??

    I've only listened a few times, but each time I did, it seemed like he was shitting on working class folks. He reminds you of his blue collar roots and then dismisses anybody who is still there.

    Ya gotta love America. You have OWS types who protest the 1%ers and then the 1%ers ask "poor" folks for money to fund their vanity projects and people can't donate fast enough.

    I'm so sick of rich people their fans/followers for money. For ANY reason: making a movie, settling a debt, whatever. Add Carolla to Zach Braff and the "Veronica Mars" creators and all the rest. Pathetic.

    The worst part is, the true patent trolls get a free pass and look less scummy. Either way, why ask fans to pay to defend his business, he's the one who gets the all the gains. If he were selling shares of stock in his podcast business to raise money for defense, that would be different. I've been had by the real fools, no one paid to defend me, nor would i ask.

    That definitions seems a bit off to me. If I created a new type of hinge and patented it, I could charge people who want to use it even if I don't actually make a product utilizing that hinge. I don't think that would make me a "patent troll."

    It would not. Because you created it, you have every moral and legal right to defend and be paid for use of your creation. A troll buys patents with the sole intent of suing people they know are already infringing, And sometimes people who are not technically infringing, but they know have deep pockets and may settle to avoid bad press and hassle.
