‘because the amounts are far less than the costs of fighting’
What large infringers who we expect are behind these slanted PR propaganda ‘articles’ don’t tell you is that these settlement amounts are often far less than what infringers would have to pay if the patent holders won in court. But because of changes in US patent law since the ebay SCOTUS decision and others such as AIA, Alice, etc inventors really have no fair chance at commercializing, or enforcing so they are forced to settle for what they can get rather than risk almost certain defeat in a patent system where it is now far too slow, expensive and difficult for us to get and enforce our patents. Large multinationals know this far too well…they’re the ones who caused all this chaos and complete disregard for property rights. All these changes have done is legalize theft of our inventions. Just because they call it ‘reform’ doesn’t mean it is. Don’t believe the lies of thieves.
