"Patents play an important role in this war of ecosystems," said Alexander I. Poltorak, chairman and chief executive of U.S.-based General Patent Corp., which represents clients on intellectual-property enforcement matters and licensing. "Therefore, the courtrooms became part of the playground, not just the marketplace. It's a new reality."   -  Wall Street Journal, April 5, 2011
