Reducing Patent Risk
RPX provides operating companies with services that reduce patent risk and cost. Through our core Defensive Patent Acquisition services – open market buying and litigation purchases – and through large-scale structured transactions, we acquire high-risk patents and patent rights. Our clients generally receive a license to every patent we own, making each patent in the RPX portfolio one less patent that could be used in an infringement assertion against the members of our network.
We also offer a growing suite of complementary risk management services, including litigation insurance and strategic intelligence and advisory services.
All of our service offerings build on RPX's unique central position in the market. We deal directly with a broad array of patent sellers, and we do not and never will offensively assert the patents in our portfolio. Our business model is designed to transfer value from patent users to patent owners as efficiently as possible (without unnecessary and expensive legal conflict). When we succeed, all market participants benefit.
