Participants will receive a basic working knowledge of various common, but most misunderstood, practices for reducing the risk of patent infringement litigation. The course will teach the role and significance of patent claims, address pragmatic record keeping practices, reveal ways to monitor competitive patent filings, explain common practical pitfalls in analyzing a patent landscape, and illustrate alternative ways that risk can be managed (e.g., by use of contracts).
This course complements the Patent Litigation in the U.S.: What You Need to Know web seminar, which focuses on what engineers and business managers need to know to effectively manage patent procurement, patent infringement litigation, and patent licensing.
Registrations will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. the day before the start of the web seminar, but early registration is encouraged to allow for pre-course set-up and instructions.
