More than 80 percent of patents litigated by patent assertion entities were acquired from operating companies. Indeed, in many respects operating companies can be said to have created whatever patent assertion problems they so vigorously fight against today.
To address this reality that so much of the patent assertion risks can be mitigated through industry cooperation and action, a number of private organizations have pioneered market-driven solutions. The Open Invention Network (OIN), Allied Security Trust, the LOT Network, and RPX all offer slightly different models for mitigating patent assertion risk.
Whether you are concerned with open source licensing, non-practicing entities, or general risk mitigation relating to patent assertion, this webinar will provide an overview on the innovative, alternative licensing programs put in place by the Open Invention Network, Allied Security Trust, LOT Network, and RPX. We will discuss the benefits and risks of these organizations, what has driven members to join one or more of these groups, and why these programs provide alternative risk mitigation solutions for all industries with IP concerns.
Join Gene Quinn, patent attorney and founder of IPWatchdog.com, Jaime Siegel, Global Director of Licensing for Open Invention Network, and Russ Binns, Chief Executive Officer of Allied Security Trust.
