Communications between the C-suite and IP counsel can be layered with misunderstanding and peril.

Webinar: Leveraging Artificial Intelligence in the Invention Disclosure Process – Sponsored by IP.com

For many years Boolean Logic has been the gold standard for searching for patents and invention disclosures, and for some it still is.  But as every patent professional knows, Boolean Logic, as good as it is, has significant limitations. Indeed, relevant content necessary to make accurate evaluations can often be excluded from even the most intensive searches. Enter artificial intelligence…

Webinar: Patenting and Litigating Pharmaceutical Salts – Sponsored by Barash Law

Over the past 80 years, approximately 40% of all FDA-approved pharmaceutical products have been in the form of pharmaceutical salts. The typical route for claiming such salts in patents involves claim cascades beginning with the ubiquitous “and pharmaceutically acceptable salts thereof” and often ends by naming the salt species of interest. Examples of such salts include sodium or hydrochloride salts…

Webinar: Patent Holdout and the Quest for Balance in SEP Licensing – Sponsored by Interdigital

The story of hold-up has seduced many who believe patents stand in the way of innovation, but what product or service has ever been held up by patent owners, or patent wars?

Webinar: Strategies for Stopping Patent Infringement on Amazon – Sponsored by Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease LLC

Online marketplaces, such as Amazon.com, provide brands unprecedented growth opportunities, but also give a similar advantage to brand competitors by offering an inexpensive and easy forum to market copycat, counterfeit, or infringing products. U.S. patent rights are traditionally enforced in federal courts or through International Trade Commission investigations, but these enforcement strategies can be slow and expensive, and deploying them…

Webinar: Jurassic Patents – Patenting in the Life Sciences and Protecting Innovation – Sponsored by Volpe Koenig

Gene therapy, after years of promise, is now a reality, and monoclonal antibody pharmaceuticals are on the rise. Diagnostic testing is a necessary and standard part of medical practice.

Webinar: AI Based Determination – Challenging the Status Quo – Sponsored By Unified Patents & IPlytics

One of the major challenges when licensing, transacting, or managing Standard Essential Patents (SEPs) is that there is no public database that provides information about verified SEPs. Standard-setting organizations (SSOs) such as ETSI (4G / 5G), IEEE (Wi-Fi), or ITUT (HEVC/VVC) maintain databases of so-called self-declared patents that are required to be licensed pursuant to a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory…

Over the past 80 years, about 40% of all FDA-approved pharmaceutical products have been in the form of pharmaceutical salts.

Webinar: The Role of IP Managers in Promoting Innovation – Sponsored By Similari

The value of intangible assets has reached staggering levels. By some estimates, as much as 90% of S&P valuation is attributed to intangible assets.

Still, for a variety of reasons the role of IP Manager can be difficult, with…

Webinar: The Modern FTO Framework: Strategies for Connected, Risk-Reduced Innovation – Sponsored By ClearstoneIP

With legal processes undergoing profound transformation, freedom-to-operate is ripe for modernization. Patent data has become unwieldy and it is no longer feasible to maintain analysis in spreadsheets as new purpose-built models are available to instinctively guide processes, integrate patent data, and capture decisions. In our last webinar, we covered common FTO issues and best practices from both in-house and outside…

Webinar: Brand Protection – Blocking, Monitoring & Enforcing Domain Name Rights

Perhaps nowhere in the intellectual property world is the old saying about an ounce of prevention being worth a pound of cure more accurate than with respect to domain names.

With cybersquatting and other online threats on…
