Companies that own patents, but do not make products that practice the patents, are generally referred to as “non-practicing entities” or “NPEs.”  NPE patent suits have been on the rise over the past decade, and many of these suits have resulted in big dollar verdicts for NPEs. The America Invents Act was enacted in 2011 to address a variety of patent law issues.  The AIA made substantial changes to the patent statute.  Some of those changes will impact existing and future NPE lawsuits. 

This CLE will focus on how the AIA will impact NPE patent litigation.
