Please explain:

"... one behavior of corporations and communties
in reaction to such a broad patent with considerable financial
repercussions is to financially hold the owner's head under
water until they quit kicking.  This is the problem of having
a very valuable patent and insufficient resources to defend it."

How do they do that? And without metaphors please.
