Most startups worry about being able to use their patents, since they do not have a war chest to assert the patents.
Other than getting patent enforcement insurance, startups use patents in many different ways. Mostly, they use patents to negotiate deals with competitors, start joint ventures, cross license to get access to technology, and many other uses.
Patent enforcement insurance is essential for any startups that have patents, otherwise these assets will never have real value if they are infringed.
