Patent litigation companies have a long history of being a source of controversy.
But now that they are no longer big business in the US, it is clear they are the big target of the tech industry’s patent wars.
The US Patent and Trademark Office has issued guidance for companies, like Google and Facebook, to take a harder stance on patent litigation.
The guidance, called the Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, outlines how companies must respond to the patent troll’s claims.
Here’s what you need to know about the new guidance.
Google has not yet issued a response.
But Facebook and Google have filed separate lawsuits to challenge the patent holders’ claims.
They argue that the troll is seeking to destroy their business.
The tech industry is still struggling to deal with a wave of patent trolls in the past few years.
And the threat of litigation from these trolls has caused many companies to take the company and its patents off the table.
The companies that are in the patent wars, such as Facebook, are using patents to fight for a new, larger piece of the pie.
In the end, the troll has lost.
