Overview (Program Summary)

A program hosted by:

ACC San Francisco Bay Area

Non-practicing entities monetize their patent portfolios not through offering products or services, but rather by asserting patents against practicing entities. Because non-practicing entities are not competitors and their practices do not fit a typical business mold, they can be difficult and expensive for companies – especially younger companies – to successfully handle. On September 14, join Principals Michael Headley and David Hoffman for a conversation about NPEs, including:

  • What NPEs are and who they target
  • What you should do when you get a letter (or worse – a suit) from an NPE
  • How to effectively advise management about the costs and risks of dealing with NPEs
  • Stories about the most extreme (and sometimes sanctionable) NPE behavior
