A Case Study of Patent Abuse (PART II): Patent Trolls on the Run —The Printing Industry Is Winning!

TASA ID: 7210

This is a follow-up to my July 2016 white paper entitled, “A Case Study of Patent Abuse: Printing Industry Faces New Nemesis Impacting Growth and Employment—Patent Trolls.”

That white paper received enormous industry press coverage, and to my understanding was used as part of court proceedings resulting in the dismissal of two long and visible printing industry cases brought on by patent trolls, CTP Innovations (CTP) and High Quality Printing Innovations (HQPI). However, since then, two new cases emerged by patent trolls attempting to threaten and extort funds from printing industry companies and Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) using standard technology common for doing day-to-day business in the printing and related industries.

A Case Study of Patent Abuse: Printing Industry Faces New Nemesis Impacting Growth and Employment —Patent Trolls

TASA ID: 7210

Patent trolls, the epitome of greed, thoughtlessness, and unethical behavior, are impacting the survival, growth, and development of printing and related companies.

 

The printing industry in the United States has been in a state of decline over the past 20 years (from approximately 55,000 companies to under 30,000 today). Traditionally a low-profit industry, printing companies and their suppliers are trying to find ways of increasing products and services focusing on digital technologies and related applications in order to increase profits and to save jobs. Patent trolls are inhibiting such growth and are causing companies to consider closing, downsizing, and laying off employees because they cannot afford to absorb the huge fees being demanded by the trolls, while also maintaining or growing business. The trolls are equivalent to extortionists with no sense of business morals and ethics, or of the nation’s push to grow companies, produce jobs, and keep or bring back as much business as possible to the United States.

How to Get Evidence Admitted or Re-admitted by Use of Rule 703: The Advantages of a Life Expectancy Using Life Insurance Underwriting and Life Settlement Methods in the Legal Setting

TASA ID: 2409

The investigation and use of personal attributes and personal history in assessing mortality risk is standard practice in the life insurance and life settlement industries.  Life insurers want to ensure that the premiums charged for a life insurance policy accurately reflect the mortality risk of an applicant.  Life settlement providers similarly want to ensure that the calculated life expectancy accurately reflects the mortality risk of the insured seeking to settle (sell) his/her life insurance policy.
