« Patent troll »: statistical comparison between cases and research papers

This post introduces a new series dedicated to statistical analyses of antitrust law. We called it: « Let’s Stat ».

Patent TrollMethodology:

We entered the keywords “patent troll” on the Papers SSRN search engine, as well as on WestLaw (for all State and Federal cases).

Comments:

  • Of course, the Courts are now using the term “patent troll” for practices they may have described differently in former years. Still, the increased use of “patent troll” keywords appears to be a good indicator of Court tendencies.
  • Papers SSRN does not gather all research papers. However, we presume that SSRN papers are a representative sample of all papers written on the subject.
