Startups often ask how the validity of their patents may be challenged by others, how they may enforce their patents against alleged infringers, and how they may generate revenue from their patents. In this seminar, we will discuss how these procedures work in the US Patent & Trademark Office (post-grant proceedings) and in the federal courts (litigation), as well as the laws that govern patent licensing deals.
By the end of this session, you’ll be able to:
- Understand the various avenues by which the validity of patent may be challenged.
- Appreciate the strategy involved in patent litigation.
- Identify the relevant factors in negotiating a favorable patent licensing deal.
