Silicon Valley-based intellectual property litigation partner Leslie Spencer and associate Marta Belcher authored an Oct. 10 Law360 expert analysis article on defensive patenting strategies for blockchain innovators.

The authors discuss how in response to increased blockchain patenting activity for the distributed ledger technology, blockchain companies and other organizations have started collaborating to develop a patent pledge or patent pools related to blockchain technology with members agreeing not to sue any other company in the network for patent infringement. The article includes a table of 25 issued U.S. patents for blockchain technology from a wide range of industries.
