Patent litigation won’t slow down

2012 was a “banner year” for patent infringement litigation, says PwC

According to PricewaterhouseCoopers’ (PwC) 2013 Patent Litigation Study, 2012 was a “banner year for patent infringement litigation.”

There were 5,189 patent litigation filings last year, a 29 percent increase over the number of 2011 filings. Part of the reason for the uptick was a provision in the America Invents Act that limits the number of defendants that could be named in a single suit. The provision caused a boost in the overall number of suits targeting single defendants.
