A program for patent litigators AND patent prosecution attorneys - patent litigation is burdensome for any company, but it presents an outsize burden for smaller and emerging companies. Among other things, a patent litigation threat can discourage investment, and divert company resources away from product development. When a non-practicing entity asserts patent rights, some of the avenues typical in competitor circumstances are unavailable. Join us for a discussion about strategies that smaller companies may employ to manage patent litigation threats by non-practicing entities.
