BIG WEEK FOR PATENT LITIGATION - quite a few high-profile litigations flamed up this week, including CSIRO's WLAN patent, Microsoft's Excel patent, and Broadcom's recent complaint of infringement filed against Qualcomm in the district court and in the ITC. Pretty heavyweight stuff. I don't know how true this is, but one individual I talk to about these things thinks that spring/summer is "prime suin' time" for many companies. He couldn't give me any specific reasons for this conclusion (one theory was that the middle of a fiscal year is a decent time to determine if you have the resources to pick fights like this), but it would be interesting to obtain empirical data to see what time of year invites the largest number of lawsuits.
