Creating a Patent Landscape Game Plan: Identifying Strategic Threats and Potential Incoming Litigation

About this Webinar

Patent landscape monitoring is about so much more than simply identifying white space. For those who engage with strategic purpose, patent landscape monitoring is about competitive intelligence, whether that intelligence presents itself in the form of competitors encroaching upon your marketplace with new products, or copyists who are or likely will be engaging in infringement.

In this webinar, the panel will discuss the proper balance between defensive monitoring and monitoring to identify white space and other specific examples of how landscaping analysis can be useful to proactively provide value-add to business development strategies. The panel will also address what to do when litigation is approaching.
