Show Me the Money: Quickly Find Court Damages Awards, Verdicts, Judgments, and Fines by Dollar Amount

Docket Alarm is excited to announce a new search feature that makes researching damages awards and jury verdicts fast and easy.

The Turning Tide Against Patent Owners

So called "patent trolls" have been all over the news, and with good reason— these entities pose significant risks to the hi-tech industry. But a new tribunal has been shown to be effective at thwarting patent trolls and other overly aggressive patent owners.

With the passage of the America Invents Act ("AIA"), a new tribunal called the Patent Trial and Appeal Board, or "PTAB", was created as an efficient and cost effective means of invalidating patents.
