Blocking of Competitors

A strategic blocking of a competitor aims at placing a patent application directly in the competitor's core area, so that the competitor is blocked such that he will be inclined to negotiate with you.

This could be recommended if your company is also blocked by patent rights of said competitor and your company already applied for a licence that wasn't granted.
