A blog co-authored by Mintz Member Daniel Weinger and Associate Robert Sweeney was republished in The Licensing Journal. The blog post covered the recent Federal Circuit decision in Uniloc USA, Inc. et. al. v. Apple, Inc. The blog summarizes, "Patent owners that lack sufficient resources are often required to utilize the services of an outside litigation funding source to vindicate their patent rights. Often times, these patent owners communicate with such litigation funders regarding potential litigations and licensing programs such that the litigation funder can evaluate the reasonableness of the investment. It is no surprise that in such situations, licensing targets or other curious parties attempt to force the disclosure of those communications to assert leverage over the patent owner".
