FREE PROTECTION FROM PATENT TROLLS

The Application Developers Alliance wants you to focus on innovation, not litigation.

 
 

Patent trolls use junk patents to intimidate and extort innovators and small businesses into paying licensing fees by threatening long and costly legal battles. Unfounded threats and litigation distract innovators, chill investment, and waste extraordinary amounts of capital that could be used to build products and grow companies. 

We have partnered with Unified Patents to bring free protection from patent trolls to companies with less than $20 million in annual revenue.

Act now to protect yourself

Patent trolls abuse our patent system to extort money from businesses. They claim patent infringement knowing that cost of defending against a claim (even an unfounded and unjustified one) is often enough to scare companies into settling. Thousands of companies each year, including members of the Application Developers Alliance, have been threatened and targeted by patent trolls.

Unified Patents is a leading company in the troll-fighting industry. On behalf of its members, Unified Patents:

  1. Turns the table by attacking the trolls instead of waiting for the trolls to attack first;

  2. Monitors the patent market so it can track when trolls are buying and selling patents, and analyze when trolls are more likely to strike; and

  3. Analyzes patents when trolls threaten Unified members, and either attacks the patent independently or offers guidance to members about the weakness of the patents.
