    Edwards Wildman's Ralph Loren Comments on FTC Inquiry into Patent Assertion Entities in World Intellectual Property Review

    News
    Ralph Loren, an intellectual property partner in Edwards Wildman's Boston office, discussed how the US Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has announced it will begin an investigation into patent-assertion entities (PAEs) in World Intellectual Property Review. In the article, "FTC to Launch Inquiry into Patent Assertion Entities," Loren said, "An investigation probably should be done because this has become a hot topic. The figures for patent litigation filed by those seemingly collecting patents are high and are clogging up the courts. Everybody is saying this [unnecessary litigation] has become a burden and you have to make sure that the lawsuits filed have a basis."
