Join Gene Quinn, patent attorney and founder of IPWatchdog.com, and a panel of experts in this free, on-demand webinar.
When it comes to making patent portfolio decisions, it's important to be strategic. But with so many strategic decisions to consider throughout the innovation lifecycle, where should you start?
Start by watching this informative webinar. It covers:
- Why changes to patent law have made patents much easier to successfully challenge at the Patent Office and in federal court. And why these changes have made it necessary to file faster, but better and more detailed patent applications that can survive a multitude of new procedural and legal challenges.
- Questions about the continued viability and value of legacy patents issued under different legal rules, which together with budget restraints must be factored into consideration when making decisions on which patents to continue to maintain.
- Why some innovations are no longer worth patenting in the U.S., or if patents are sought, applicants might want to consider waiving publication if they are not going to seek foreign rights.
- Patent Quality vs. Quantity: The value of a patent, for better or worse, is related to the likelihood that it could be successfully enforced in litigation. That may lead some to think there is a safety in numbers, but are fewer, higher quality patents strategically preferable?
