TITLE

Patent Assertion Entities (PAEs) Under the Microscope

DESCRIPTION
Prof. Cotropia will discuss his recent research and forthcoming law review article which states:

  • There is essentially no increase (in patent litigation) if one considers only the number of unique patent holders or the number of parties excluding the patentee
  • The increase in the raw numbers of lawsuits appears to be driven almost entirely by (sic) a procedural rule change relating to joinder passed with the 2011 patent reform
  • various litigation characteristics relating to Patent Holding Companies such as the number of unique patent holders, total number of accused infringers, and the distribution of their litigation, appear nearly unchanged from 2010.

SPEAKER
Christopher Anthony Cotropia, Professor of Law and Austin Owen Research Fellow at the University of Richmond School of Law, and UT law school Alumni.
