RPX Insurance Services Launches Indemnification Coverage for NPE Litigation

RPX Corporation announced that it is offering a solution for software companies to insure their contractual indemnity obligations, with policies where both a supplier and its downstream customers are covered if a non-practicing entity (NPE or "patent troll") sues for alleged patent infringement. Software companies and their clients are particularly vulnerable to the threat of patent troll litigation. According to RPX research, every time a supplier is sued by an NPE, an average of five of its customers are sued as well. Further, in 30% of software-related NPE campaigns since 2012, no supplier was even named in the suit. RPX's patent litigation insurance can help software suppliers manage the risk of NPE litigation for themselves and their customers. All RPX patent litigation insurance products benefit from RPX's defensive patent acquisition service, proprietary data, and research, which enable RPX to effectively mitigate and insure patent troll risk. Using its actuarial model, RPX insurance policies are tailored to the specific risk and coverage needs of each insured. RPX policies provide integrated claims management, preferred provider legal services, and case resolution support, thus allowing a company to fully outsource every aspect of dealing with NPE risk.
