Defensive Patenting

This is a technique often practiced by a company that has a strong presence in making a particular type of product. Patents would be obtained on the product to ensure that others could not make them, but patents would also be procured for other products that might be able to perform the same or closely similar function (even though the company doesn’t intend to make these other products). That way, the company’s competitors will have a difficult time making similar products that avoid infringement.
