Definition - "Patent Troll"

"PATENT TROLL" - Any party that intentionally misconstrues the claims of their patent to assert it against another. A patent troll does not have to be a non-practicing entity (NPE) or in any particular industry, all that is required is an intentional misconstruing of the claims in an attempt to extort money from another.

  1. USPA,

    Looks like you have some great stuff here. I presume you will see my post on IP Watchdog, but in case you didn't, I have some thoughts on funding an inter partes reexam without creating estoppel. Feel free to contact me at to discuss further.
