A tough new troll has emerged in the shape of Inventergy which buys patents and then goes after companies which, it alleges, have infringed them.
It claims to have 750 patents which have been infringed by 135 companies and is in discussions with 20 of them.
Unlike self-respecting trolls which develop their own IP, Inventergy does not create any technology.
It seems to be a middleman using technology developed by other companies to sue manufacturers which may have infringed patents on it.
The usual guff about ‘defending its rights’ and how ‘unfortunate’ its law-suit is, and how it’s ‘seeking court assistance’ are being trotted out as Inventergy sues Texas-based Genband for alleged infringement of patents relating to VOIP and IMS.Tags: technology development
