IP STRATEGY: Chicago 2014

The AIA has transformed the landscape: IP owners are finding it harder to monetize and enforce their patent portfolio and face growing hostility when they do.

Yet IP leaders are being asked internally to deliver on revenue targets by proactively monetizing, licensing, selling and enforcing their IP assets. This surge in IP commercialization means that companies now have to defend against infringement claims from rivals, corporate trolls, as well as NPEs. A strong defensive strategy is crucial to mitigate risk.

IP leaders need to build a coherent offense/defense strategy on solid processes and tools: due diligence, portfolio evaluation, unified patent prosecution – all while benchmarking its effectiveness. 

With increased scrutiny from company boards and the media, IP executives must also demonstrate top-level management skills: allocating resources, making a strong business case for their strategies and getting leadership on board.

The IP Strategy Summit will cover all the challenges and opportunities of this new IP landscape.
