Executive Office of the President, Patent Assertion and U.S. Innovation (June 2013) (full-text).

Overview Edit


This report looks at firms who do not practice the patents they own and instead engage in aggressive litigation to collect license and other fees from alleged infringers. A review of the evidence suggests that on balance, such patent assertion entities (PAEs) (also known as "patent trolls") have had a negative impact on innovation and economic growth.
