As America watches the continued trickle of Presidential election results, the patent docket has stayed heavy, with 111 new district court complaints filed last week, and just 27 petitions (one post grant review (PGR) and 26 inter partes reviews (IPRs), down again). District court filings were (as usual) propped up by the aggressive filing patterns of WSOU against another new defendant (this week it was TP-Link’s turn), as well as another surprising flurry of IP Edge suits and a handful of old-fashioned competitor suits, like those between faucet maker Delta Faucet Co. and other market competitors. IP Edge seems poised to end the year the way they started it, filing an amazing number of file-and-settle litigations across districts.
