Which software provider has the most patent trolls?
Patriot software, which is used by police, fire departments, and other law enforcement agencies, has filed more than 70 patents against software vendors in recent years.
According to the patent database compiled by the Institute for Justice, Patriot has filed approximately 7,000 patent infringement lawsuits against software companies since 2009.
Patriot software is also used by law enforcement officials to access information stored on their computers.
The software company has also filed numerous lawsuits against a number of tech companies.
In 2016, the company was awarded $1.2 billion in a settlement with Apple for patent infringement, which was the largest-ever in a patent infringement case.
The Justice Department is now investigating whether Patriot used its patents to make profits off the patent system, which can cost companies millions in lost profits.
Proprietary Software, which has been used by defense contractors, has also become an increasingly lucrative target of patent trolls.
The software company, which received a patent in 2012, filed more patent infringement suits against companies in the military in the last year than any other software company.
“Patriot has a reputation for aggressive litigation, and the technology used by its software has been cited as one of the reasons why the US is one of only two countries in the world to have no patent office,” Bryan Fischer, executive director of the Institute on Governmental Oversight, told Business Insider.
A few of the software companies in question have also been hit with a massive amount of patent lawsuits.
Apple, the most valuable software company in the United States, has received more than $3.5 billion in patent infringement settlements in the past decade, according to the Institute.
While some of these lawsuits are filed in states with strong patent laws, most are filed under federal courts in other parts of the country.
Bobby Ehrhardt, executive vice president of Patents at Public Knowledge, said that patent trolls often file lawsuits to force defendants to settle their lawsuits, rather than just stop the lawsuit.
“[Patriots] can use these lawsuits as a tool to harass and intimidate companies who are doing business with the government, including in the private sector,” Ehrhardt said.
Another problem with the software industry is that it’s not very good at making its products work.
Many of the most popular software applications in use today were created before the invention of the computer.
One of the main problems with software companies is that the software is often too proprietary, according the Patent Industry Association, a trade group.
Erick Arneson, an analyst with Gartner, said in an article for the Wall Street Journal that software companies can get away with patent trolls because of the lack of oversight.
Some of the biggest patent trolls in the country are known for their aggressive litigation tactics, and it’s only a matter of time before they file more lawsuits against those that stand up for consumer rights.
But while the software company companies may be getting away with more lawsuits, they’re not getting away from the real issue: software patents.
When companies use patent trolls to harass their rivals, they can actually end up hurting the American consumer.
