Patent Aggregators

Patent aggregation is the purchasing of patents and patent rights. Patent aggregators help protect small inventors against power patent criminals.

Patent Aggregators buy patent rights in bulk to either defend their member’s manufacturers or who have built an economy of scale in fighting intellectual property criminals.  Most inventors lack the skill needed to not only invent something, but to either manufacture or fight savvy con artists who specialize in stealing the inventor's fruits.
Intellectual Property Criminals tend to be highly sophisticated. Like parasites, they want to leach from inventors who usually don't earn a penny of profit from their work. The media campaign funded by Intellectual Property Criminals is trying to convince the public that it's OK to steal ideas by labeling the inventor's "policing agents" so to speak as "Patent Trolls". Often the best option infringed upon inventors have is to sell their rights to a patent aggregator to get enough money to work on their next invention. 

Patent Aggregation is practiced by organizations which purchase patents as their sole activity. These companies are also referred to as patent holding companies. The best known patent aggregator is Intellectual Ventures (IV). Other patent aggregators are Allied Security Trust (AST), Acacia Technologies and RPX Corporation

Patent aggregating members can for example join organizations like Allied Security Trust to share their inventions. Patent sharing reduces chances that patent aggregation members would infringe on an inventor's patents. Allied Security Trust members may or may have included:
Sun MicrosystemsMotorolaHewlett-PackardGoogleCisco SystemsEricsson and or Verizon Communications

The patent system is designed to reward inventors for the hard work and high risks. It's time to stop illegal stealing of patents through patent aggregation, and stronger enforcement from our planet's world governments.

  1. If someone is too lazy or uncreative to come up with their own hot invention idea then consider compensating the inventor with the invention you wish to use. They might be easier to work with than you imagine. Plus you won't run the risk of paying triple damages.
