Some Advantages of Anonymous Patent Opposition


Opposing anonymously may avert your market competitors from knowing that you are interested in their technology.


Opposing anonymously may allow you to influence a patent licence, whilst at the same time negotiating face-to-face with the patent owner on cordial terms.


Opposing anonymously may allow you freedom to develop argumentation that otherwise you may be precluded from using if opposing in your own name.


Opposing anonymously may provide you with a commercial edge over your competition.
