But Machulis told Fast Company that, in fact, the bigger impact might be if a company like TZU—nominally a patent troll, given that just about the only search results for the company relate to its lawsuit—is able to prevail against Kickstarter. In its suits, TZU claimed that both Kickstarter and the sex-toy makers willfully infringed on the patent by proceeding with the manufacture and sale of products, or the funding of them, after being aware of the patent. In theory, at least, willful infringement can result in treble damages, although courts have recently made it more difficult for successful plaintiffs to collect the full three times the damages.
