In this week’s “Expert Insights” series, we spoke with the noted patent law expert, Michael Risch, Associate Professor of Law at Villanova University, about the role of patent licensing and aggregation in the market. 

Widely-published in the field of IP and Internet law, Professor Risch lends his insight into the two biggest beneficiaries of today’s patent aggregators:

  1. The numerous independent inventors and small businesses who can achieve a return on their investment by licensing their patents   
  2. The world’s largest companies that can reduce a high volume of IP licensing and litigation costs at scale
