Unmasked: The Patent Troll Tracker Steps Forward

Less than 6 months after having a bounty placed on his identity (recently upped to $15k) by Ray Niro, the Patent Troll Tracker has stepped forward and revealed himself - he is none other than Rick Frenkel, Director of Intellectual Property at Cisco Systems, Inc. (see his LinkedIn profile here).

According to Rick:

I got an anonymous email, from the guy who probably collected the bounty, telling me I better tell everyone who I am (and he clearly knew), or else he would take care of it for me. The clear threat in the email is that he would do it in a way I wouldn't be happy about. I don't know what that means, but as I have been growing weary of anonymity anyway, here I am.
