Financial Services Response To Patent Trolls Prescribed

Rob van Arnam of Williams Mullen advises the financial services industry on its action plan to address patent trolls:

“Companies in the financial services industry are now direct targets of the NPE assault.  While taking advantage of the Act and other congressional measures, if enacted, these businesses must also take matters into their own hands, expanding their own patent portfolios, ensuring their indemnity rights from the licensing and use of technology and software, watching and attacking business method patents in the PTO, and preparing to file Declaratory Judgment actions to control the forum of any patent infringement lawsuit threatened against them.”

Presumably, these steps should apply to every industry, not just financial services.
