New Paradigms in Patent Monetization and Damages

New Paradigms in Patent Monetization and Damages

Recent Supreme Court and Federal Circuit decisions are transforming the legal framework governing patent valuation. Patent owners are re-writing their playbooks for proving damages in patent litigation, developing licensing strategies for monetizing patent portfolios, and using patent income to fund basic research. Our distinguished panelists will offer a diverse range of views on the changing economics of patent ownership, licensing, and litigation and will provide their unique perspectives on the substantial and continuing value to be found in the pursuit of patent rights.
