Grant Gross at TechWorld writes,

"Cloud hosting provider Rackspace is striking back against patent holder Rotatable Technologies, a Texas company that has filed patent infringement cases against more than a dozen companies in the past year.

Earlier this month Rackspace teamed up with Brocade to challenge two other companies it accused of being 'patent trolls'."
