Whack-a-Troll: Supreme Court beats Congress to the punch on patent reform

Guest Post from Ralph Jocke of The Firm Walker & Jocke discussing recent patent reform rulings.

“This should make patent trolls, and their counsel, more careful when bringing suits or deciding to engage in tactics that cause unreasonable expense to the party defending the suit.

The Supreme Court has provided companies that are sued by patent trolls with new weapons to help to defeat infringement claims. These decisions, along with the new procedures available in the Patent Office for challenging the validity of patents, help companies to level the playing field in the fight against patent trolls.”
