RPX Corporation (Rational Patent EXchange) is a provider of patent risk management services, offering defensive buying, acquisition syndication, patent intelligence and advisory services. The Company provides a Defensive Patent Aggregation service to mitigate clients’ risk of litigation from non-practicing entities (NPEs) – also called patent trolls – which acquire patents for the sole purpose of licensing and asserting their patent rights. RPX identifies and purchases patent assets they identify as of high value, relevance, and risk that could be used offensively against members of the company's client network. Depending on the situation, RPX may acquire assets from a third party or directly from an NPE. When necessary and possible, the Company will buy patent rights out of an active litigation.
