The sales market for patent rights and their valuation can be a difficult road to navigate. To help shed some light on this, we teamed up with Professor Mark Lemley of Stanford Law School to explore patent litigation outcomes. We analyzed our data based on ownership and source to test our intuitions about the outcomes of litigated-purchased patents. The results may surprise you.
