HOW PATENT TROLLS EFFECT INVENTORS
Incubig for Inventors 1
Patent Inventors and buyers of patents (such as a manufacturer who can commercialize patented inventions) may have a difficult time finding each other because the potential usefulness of a patented technology is often not obvious, and often depends on the complementarity between the protected technology and the buyer’s own portfolio.

According to study done by Lauren Cohen, Umit Gurun and Scott Kominers, inventors only receive 5% of their patent’s value after successful infringement cases. The rest goes to lawyers and NPEs that do not engage in innovation. Most of the NPE’s do not generate any inventions of their own but only buy patents from the inventors. Then these patents are used for milking cash from firms with the most cash by threatening to sue these firms.
