It’s still not clear how many university patents are transferred to patent trolls overall, as many such companies don’t make their portfolios public. The Electronic Frontier Foundation has recently called on universities to pledge not to cooperate with patent trolls. Campaigns like these can help reduce the damages of universities’ aggressive patenting pursuits, which have long ago spiraled out of control.

It seems logical to me that any university patent transferred to an NPE should be invalidated, regardless of the patent domain. This would be especially true for any patent funded by a research grant from the government.
