After receiving a round of comments, the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Chairwoman Edith Ramirez recently announced that she will ask the commission to conduct a Section 6(b) investigation into the business practices of non-practicing entities (NPEs), and promised to use its antitrust enforcement powers if those findings show that enforcement is warranted.

Section 6(b) would allow the FTC to issue subpoenas to NPEs to investigate their activities. In this blog post, Fish Principal Christian Chu breaks down FTC’s statement and what the goals are of such investigations. For the full discussion, read this blog post, FTC announces NPE investigation and possible antitrust action, on Fish’s Litigation Blog.
