Non-practising entities (NPEs) and patent remedies for future infringement
Park, Jae-il (2013) Non-practising entities (NPEs) and patent remedies for future infringement. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This research establishes a new patent remedy (injunction) system against future infringements in such a way as to discourage trolling behaviours of non-practising entities (NPEs) without chilling inventors’ incentives to innovate. For this research target, this thesis reviewed the general characteristics of NPEs in the current and past patent system, the current patent remedy laws in different countries (the US, UK and Germany), the patent holdups caused by NPEs’ patent enforcement against manufacturers, and various solutions which have been proposed so far.
