How can enterprises avoid "getting angry" in the "battlefield" of patent attack and defense

led lighting industry has developed rapidly in recent years. However, after the rapid development and expansion, the symptoms of subsequent weakness in the LED industry are becoming more and more obvious, and patents have increasingly become the bottleneck for the further development of led enterprises.
