"In the end, however, the FTC was forced to admit that "[d]espite the record number of potential pay-for delay settlements in FY 2012, the vast majority of patent settlements (greater than 70%) continued to be resolved without compensation to the generic manufacturer," at least suggesting that the Commission itself has created this particular tempest in its teapot."
