"''[s]oftware patents are more than twice as likely to be litigated as other patents''" - Bessen & Meurer, at 22.
 
This was confirmed in the 2010 study [[Patent Quality and Settlement Among Repeat Patent Litigants]], page 27 (pdf page 28):
 
 
<blockquote>
 
The overrepresentation of software patents in the most‐litigated set is quite remarkable.  Software patents constituted 20.8% of the once‐litigated patents but 74.1% of the most‐litigated patents.  And again, these differences are even more dramatic if we measure  not patents but assertions of those patents in litigation.  Software patents accounted for 93.7% of the assertions of the most‐litigated patents.
