Please join us on September 4, 2014 for a webcast on Patent Litigation: Strategies for Managing Aggressive Plaintiffs and Defense.
In house counsel receive vague demands from trolls threatening litigation from companies who refuse to pay license fees for the alleged use of patented inventions and copyrighted materials. These threats carry the risk of large damages awards and assessments of attorney's fees. This presentation will include a panel of attorneys, lawmakers and judges who will talk about patent and copyright trolls and how to address the threat.
