Symantec Fails in Suing Veeam, Patent Trolling

Symantec appears to have attempted to patent troll Veeam, but avoids suing larger VMware for the same thing, in the hopes of shutting down a small, but much more popular player in the backup space. Thankfully the attempt failed and now leaves Backup Exec looking like the silly, outdated product and just makes Veeam look that much better.
There is no place in professional software for patent trolling. It's only a way to advertise that you no longer see yourself has having a viable product.
