To try to curb the phenomena of patent trolls, the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that u.s. companies may initiate a lawsuit for patent infringement only within the jurisdiction of the company of the accused.

This historic decision is very positive for Apple, which often is found to address the causes of infringement of patents in the jurisdiction of Texas is much more inclined to protect the “holding” of patents. For example, two courts in Texas have sentenced Apple to pay $ 532 million in 2015 in favour of the Smarflash, and 22 million in 2016 in favor of Acacia Research, both real patent trolls.

The judges in california, however, tend to better protect the large companies from these companies that are born and proliferate in trying to patent anything and then take one or more multinational companies. From today onwards, the causes for violation of the patents that they see as accused by Apple will be discussed in California.
