Connector Supplier article #25: Patent Litigation Concerns and Considerations

Patent Litigation Concerns and Considerations

Ron Locati, Principal Consultant

If you are feeling secure because an exclusive design or end product contains various unique and patented components, you may want to think again Patent infringement litigation is on the rise. Companies are increasingly willing to enforce their patents, as noted by the following news clips:

"The number of new patent complaints increased by nearly 15 percent in 2015 over the year before, and intellectual property attorneys say they are being pushed to take on more work as law firms stretch their resources to adapt to the influx of litigation".

"The record number of patent suits filed in (one Federal District) has created such an intense workload that it is putting a squeeze on the judicial system, as the number of patent suits filed there in 2015 shot up 77 percent over 2014”.
