‘The number of patent lawsuits filed in U.S. district courts climbed from 2,000 in 2007 to more than 5,000 last year’
So say Chinese and large multinational invention thieves and their paid propaganda machines. But the America Stops Inventing Act (Asia as we like to call it because that’s where it’s sending all our jobs) forced patent holders to sue each infringer in separate suits, whereas before 10’s of defendants could be included in each suit. Consequently, while the number of suits has increased from 2007 to 2015 (but only 3% per year as below since AIA) the number of parties sued has dropped precipitously. For inventors and small entities they have collapsed as we can no longer find contingent attorneys to take our cases. Such is the true state of America’s patent system. Don’t believe the lies and dissembling of thieves and their paid puppets.
For example, based on the Justia web site there have been 2546 patent suits filed so far this year. In 2010, prior to AIA, there were 3699 filed so patent suits have risen about 18% in 6 years, or 3% per year -a modest gain by any disinterested rational observer, despite the dissembling by large multinational invention thieves and their propaganda machines. However, as a result of AIA patent holders must now file 1 suit for each infringer whereas before we could and routinely did include 10’s of infringers per suit. Therefore, while the number of suits have increased only modestly the number of parties sued have decreased substantially.
