A Patent Troll seeking to exact royalty payments on a wide range of USB hubs recently dropped its case against tech, gaming and DIY company, Newegg- but may not be able to walk away.  Newegg is suing, in return, for judicial ruling of non-infringement, preventing the patent assertion entity (PAE) from refiling again in the future, or as their Chief Legal Officer, Lee Cheng, put it: “Now that they have started the litigation, it would be irresponsible for Newegg to not finish it.“
