Why You Should Attend

In the current business environment, with business operations having been hammered by the pandemic, patent licensing of all kinds (including bilateral licensing, portfolio cross-licensing & patent pool activity) have been heating up. In addition, a big wave of patent monetization that started in the phone industry is now spreading into the “connected car” and IoT sectors. Experts in the field will discuss how to negotiate patent license agreements, review examples of best (and, in some cases, worst) practices, and share current legal developments affecting patent licensing. Practical tips for structuring, negotiating and drafting patent licenses, with strategies for both the licensor and licensee, will be emphasized.
