While analyzing the monetization potential of Cisco’s portfolio we found that ~4500 assignees were given rejections based on Cisco’s patents. But how many of these rejections were actually 102 rejections (where identified prior art matches each and every element of a patent application’s claim)?
A total of 1373 assignees received a 102 type rejection based on Cisco’s patents. The table below has a list of the top 10 assignees that received max rejections.
