In general, companies may risk going out of business if they are not able to protect their innovations from the predatory business practices of others. One of these predatory business practices is extorting money from companies by entities known as Patent Trolls bringing ill-founded lawsuits based upon overly-broad patents. This real threat of Patent Trolls prompted a response from the public sector in the form of the America Invents Act (AIA). While the AIA was well intended in curbing the “Troll” type activities, it also carried with it the unintended consequence of creating an opportunity for trolls or infringers to attack your company's quality patents, using a procedure known as Post-Grant Review.
Post-Grant Patent Defense Insurance Policy helps level the playing field, enabling the policy holder to resist the first wave of attack, i.e. Post Grant Review, against their patents by infringers or trolls.
