Of Counsel Julie P. Bookbinder at global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP will be presenting on the webcast, “How to Effectively Deal with NPE Patent Litigation LIVE Webcast.” The webcast is part of The Knowledge Congress Live Webcast Series, the leading producer of regulatory focused webcasts. The event will take place June 30, 2016, from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. (ET).
During the live Webcast, a panel of key thought leaders and professionals assembled by The Knowledge Congress will offer a discussion on new defense strategies and tools for handling Non-Practicing Entity (NPE) litigation, intellectual property (IP) laws, and regulations. The panel will also provide guidance to IP counsel and practitioners on recent developments, trends, and challenges involving NPEs in patent litigation.
Patents are a crucial government-issued license that incentivizes invention and creativity, allowing innovators and inventors to protect their investments. As patents have become a necessity to support commercialization, so too rises a new business class of patent owner called the NPE, or pejoratively called as patent trolls. A few years back, these NPEs who only acquire and assert patents were hardly a threat. Nowadays, lawsuits brought by NPEs accounts for more than 60 percent of all patent litigation. Because of the imbalance nature of NPE litigation, these lawsuits present special challenges and a cost-benefit analysis that differs from traditional patent litigation.
Key webcast topics include:
- NPEs: An Overview
- How to Define an NPE
- NPE Patent Litigation: Background and Trends
- Minimizing Threats of NPE Patent Litigations
- Impact of Alice Corp. v. CLS Bank and other Supreme Court Decisions
- Best Strategies for Responding to NPE Lawsuits
- Other Defense Tools
