- Reuters reports RPX (RPXC +0.8%) is in advanced talks to buy PatentFreedom, a provider of subscription-based services that let companies and law firms track the activity of patent owners that could potentially file suits. No word on deal pricing.
- PatentFreedom's offerings would complement RPX's existing IP-protection services, through which the company buys patents from potential litigants on behalf of clients (in exchange for a fee).
- The report comes a month after a bill meant to make life more difficult for patent trolls was stalled in the Senate.
