GAO No Patent Litigation Explosion: No NPE Problem

There is a myth that Non-Practicing Entities (mythical creators who live under bridges) have caused an explosion in patent litigation.  A recent report from the Government Accounting Office has concluded: 1) current concerns expressed about patent licensing companies were misplaced, and 2) no such NPE litigation problem exists.  Yet Congress is pushing forward with the so called “Innovation Act.”  For more information see GAO Report on Patent Litigation Confirms No “Patent Troll” Litigation Problem.
