I have some 3rd party prior art available for a handful of published patent applications, by a few large tech corporations. I am knowledgeable in that field so I believe they would bring down a few of their claims if taken in.
My concern is with any consequences to me or my (unrelated) business - do the applicants know who filed the 3rd party prior art? I got all the way to "unregistered filer" but it asked me for a first name/last name. What are the risks of my doing so?
For instance, I'm concerned that if they do know who filed the prior art, they'll dig up their huge patent portfolios and find some way to attack my business or even blacklist me personally. Am I overthinking things?
