PTO Website Helps Defendants Sweep Patent Trolls Under the Bridge


In compliance with the White House’s June 4, 2013 executive order, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has launched a website to help consumers and businesses that receive demand letters from Patent Trolls understand their rights and find answers to common questions. Parties can find information on related lawsuits, which can help entities that have received demand letters or face infringement litigation figure out their next steps by determining whether a particular patent has already been the subject of an infringement lawsuit.  The website also contains a link that allows parties to search patent numbers to find the name of the patent holder that is behind the demand letter.
