February 2014 Ligitation Report

Unified Patents monthly litigation analysis shows that 82% of all patent litigation in the high tech sector was brought by NPEs. Only 30% of patent lawsuits brought in the medical sector where by NPEs. Our analysis clearly shows that NPEs burden high tech companies more than any other field.

Patent trolls don't just target the largest tech companies. 15% of NPE litigation in the high tech sector was brought against small or medium sized companies. The most litigious NPEs against small companies this month were QualiCode LLC and TLI Communications LLC.
