Patent Trolls

Ending Abusive Patent Litigation

ABA Position

ABA strongly supports efforts to end abusive patent litigation. Congress should act on legislation to alleviate incentives that drive abusive litigation by patent NPEs. In particular, it would be helpful to put in place measures to make it harder and more costly for NPEs to launch unfounded demand letters, restrict their ability to profit from suing end-users of technology, as opposed to those who make and or sell that technology, and provide for the recovery of litigation costs by defendants that successfully defend against abusive patent challenges from NPEs.
