Using patents as legal threat

Every day, I typically see one article about a company suing another company over "software" patents. Here's one such example, mentioned on Groklaw:

From the article:

The patents asserted are "trivial, not infringed and invalid", Barnes & Noble says, and merely a vehicle in furtherance of the scheme, as they "are not even close to covering the entire functionality of Barnes & Noble’s NookTM and Nook ColorTM devices, or of the AndroidTM Operating System."
