Global Technology Transfer Group (GTT Group) CEO & Chairman, Michael Lubitz, will present “Realities of the Patent Marketplace” to the Licensing Executives Society (LES) Montreal Chapter meeting on September 24, 2015. GTT Group is a global patent transaction advisory firm specializing in divestiture, acquisition, valuation, and analysis.
Mr. Lubitz will cover how recent decisions have impacted the marketplace, and the changes in marketplace dynamics in the wake of PTAB and validity challenges. Using real market data, Mr. Lubitz will drive an examination of how the changes affect patent value and market participants. Special attention is given to post-impact trends and the challenges to patent divestiture and licensing, and the likely direction of the patent marketplace including winners and losers.
Decisions regarding patentability, FRAND obligations, and royalty rate apportionment have had an impact on the marketplace. Marketplace dynamics are now changing with the creation of PTAB and its rise as the preferred venue for challenging patent validity. These trends are changing the marketplace, affecting both value and the participants themselves.
Regarded as a pioneer and industry leader in patent valuation and monetization, Mr. Lubitz emphasizes patent valuation analysis before considering any patent transaction that may have significant consequence. Mr. Lubitz initiated GTT Group’s internal system of integrating actual transaction data within a complex modeling framework. This assessment methodology has been deployed across a wide variety of portfolios and businesses to confirm and identify pent up or undiscovered asset value.
Mr. Lubitz is the originator of the Patent Market Index or PMI®, regarded as the benchmark index for patent transaction activity within the United States. He also developed the Patent Licensing Index or PLI®, the only index dedicated to understanding the equity performance of publicly traded patent licensing companies.
