Patent litigation organisations

(Redirected from Patent cartel)

When patent holders form an organisation to enforce their patents collectively on a field, this could be called a patent cartel.

There also exists "nice" patent collectivities, who's aim is to reduce patent aggression. These are usually called defensive patent pools.


Allied Security Trust has been called a cartel in a few articles, but without any aggressive behaviour the name doesn't fit.
