Who is to Blame for Claims Without Merit?

Bentham IMF agrees with the recent article "Claims Without Merit are the Problem, Not Trolls" published in the April/May 2014 issue of GENERAL COUNSEL by Marla R. Butler, a partner at Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi LLP. The article takes attention surrounding patent litigation reform away from patent trolls to focus on the real issue at hand -- meritless claims. Ms. Butler gives a succinct summary and explanation on those activities that lend to meritless, problematic claims and identifies how individual States are taking action.
