Last month, Unified Patents, also known as a PTAB reverse troll, launched its new service called Unified Consulting. Citing from its website, Unified Consulting “can meet the needs of their companies through IP consulting and data service and support. U[nified] C[onsulting] provides innovative solutions to clients […].” Unfortunately, the solutions Unified advertises are to “problems” […]

Previously we discussed a Unified Patents’ article, the “FRAND SCAM” fails to address many key points. But worse than these sins of omission, the article goes so far as to make some outlandish misrepresentations about the overturned TCL decision. For example, Unified incorrectly posits that the “court […] concluded […] that Ericsson had violated its […]
As we have written previously, during the course of a United States litigation — whether, under the new, federal Defend Trade Secrets Act (DTSA) or the older state-adopted Uniform Trade Secrets Act (UTSA) — plaintiffs must typically provide a description of the trade secrets allegedly stolen. What constitutes an adequate identification of the stolen or […]

In my prior article addressing confidentiality agreements, I reviewed how to identify a company’s intangible assets and how to protect them with an NDA. This article will continue the discussion of preparing an NDA.
The remedies a court can impose on behalf of a standard-essential patent owner whose Essential Patents are infringed, and even the remedies an Essential Patents owner requests became an especially contentious question between 2013-2015. During that time window, it seemed like courts and regulators were trying to severely limit the remedies available for Essential Patents […]
In my prior piece, I noted IEEE General Director Karachalios’ anti-patent positions and protectionist associations that one might find troubling in a 25 year EPO employee or the Managing Director of what is billed as the “world’s largest technical professional organization for the advancement of technology.” One would have assumed that love of technological growth […]
While companies are starting to better appreciate the role trade secrets can play in underpinning their intellectual capital, proactive trade secret management is still a very much neglected activity. This neglect can ultimately lead to the loss of valuable trade secrets and the loss of millions of dollars of value and legal fees. The widespread […]
