Patent infringement – have you received the letter? Is it a patent troll?  a patent assertion entity?

Patent Troll

The term patent troll and / or   patent-assertion entity, applies to so called “inventors” who don’t use their patents for commercial purposes.  They just assert them against other companies, even when their claim of infringement is poor.

Inequitable conduct

When “inventors” knowingly update their claims  during prosecution to encompass existing commercial technologies without submitting to the patent office the “prior art” used to create their so-called innovative claims.

What does one do when confronted with patent invalidity.

This blog presents an open forum for the postings of opinions and / or  possible prior art related to issued patents.  Prior art just doesn’t mean patents.  Product brochures, archived websites, textbooks, and the like constitute prior art.  So give it a shot and lets open it up for discussion.

Expedient solutions prior art and novelty searches have given defendants in the past enough prior art to justify reexamination and aid in claim (s) invalidation.
