Google and Intertrust Launch PatentShield to Fight Patent Litigation

2017/4/28

Google and Intertrust, a provider of computing products, have launched a new programme to assist start-ups in defending against patent litigation threats. The new programme, PatentShield, aims to prevent larger companies from using patent litigation to create an “uneven playing field” for start-ups. Members of the programme can take ownership of patents from a portfolio curated by Intertrust for defensive purposes if they are sued for infringement. Patents have been collected from those owned by both Google and Intertrust, some of which were acquired from major research labs at Fortune 500 companies.
