June 2014 Litigation Report

June saw a significant drop in the proportion of High Tech Lawsuits brought by NPEs against small or medium companies. The overall percentage of High Tech Lawsuits brought by NPEs was rather high at 85%.

The top NPEs against small companies this month both targeted startups outside of the High Tech sector. My Health Inc. and Effective Exploration LLC sued the most small or medium sized companies in June.

Considering the effectiveness of inter parte review proceedings against NPEs in High Tech, it is not surprising that patent trolls are diversifying. Regardless of your small companies sector, Unified Patents is willing to work with you to help deter NPE assertions.
