    Edwards Wildman’s Rory Radding Breaks Down New ITC Rules Regarding Patent Trolls in World Intellectual Property Review

    News
    Rory Radding, a New York-based intellectual property partner and chair of the ITC group at Edwards Wildman, discussed how the US International Trade Commission (ITC) has launched a pilot program aimed at reining in non-practicing entities that own and assert patents without making products in World Intellectual Property Review. In the article, "ITC Announces New Plans to Target Patent Trolls," Radding said, "On the whole the ITC seems to be addressing its domestic industry requirement by targeting the standard for demonstrating sufficient licensing. A lot of patent trolls have established licensing businesses. However, I think the new scheme will potentially act as a barrier to trolls who don’t want to expend a lot of money, the type of trolls who buy a patent and use it as a weapon to sue companies are not going to be prepared to do the up-front work to prove they have domestic industry so it will have a deterrent effect on them.”
