Rounding Up the 10 Biggest IP Litigation Wins of 2011

By: Jan Wolfe
Corporate Counsel

Intellectual property litigation may be recession-proof. According to a survey by PricewaterhouseCoopers, patent holders brought 2,892 U.S. infringement lawsuits in 2010--an increase of more than 5 percent over the year before. Similarly, the number of reported trade secrets cases increased by 13 percent in 2010, according to research by blogger Russell Beck, a partner at the Boston law firm Beck Reed Riden. Another recession-proof phenomenon is Apple Inc., known lately for must-have mobile gadgets--and now, apparently, for employing legions of IP lawyers in its battle to take down Google Inc.'s Android operating system.

In light of the ever-increasing importance of IP to not just Apple, but seemingly every modern business, Corporate Counsel presents this list of the top ten IP litigation wins of 2011.
