Unlikely. Its like playing the lottery, the fact you have lost 1000 times in your life doesn't stop you from buying the 1001st ticket, because the cost of entry is small compared to the potential payout.

It is good that big companies have mostly stopped just paying a small nuisance settlement to get them to go away, and decided to fight even if that's a short term losing strategy since their legal cost exceeds the small settlement most trolls would be willing to accept.
