State of the IP Marketplace: An Executive Briefing

Raymond Millien, CEO, The PCT Companies; Ron Epstein, CEO, IPotential
In the past few years, the emerging IP Marketplace has undergone significant changes, including the emergence of IP as a business asset, shifting demands in IP monetization, and evolving metrics and tools for measuring value and managing IP. More recently, the tough economic conditions have instilled tight budgets and increased interest in monetizing IP, as IP buyers take a “flight to quality”. Raymond Millien, Founder and CEO of PCT Companies, and Ron Epstein, Founder and CEO of IPotential, will share their views on the IP marketplace, including:
• What are the driving trends in buying, selling and licensing IP?
• What IP business models are getting traction?
• How can IP owners maximize value?
• How are deals getting done?
• What industries/technologies are hot?
• What is the outlook for the near- and long-term future of the marketplace?

  • Recently, as the number of patent infringement actions filed by foreign companies against Korean competitors has increased, Korean companies have responded aggressively with counteractions in multiple countries, frequently including Korea.

    With recent cases such as the Apple v. Samsung disputes, Osram v. LG Innotek & Samsung LED and the “Viagra case” between Pfizer and Hanmi Pharmaceutical, having a clear understanding of the South Korean legal framework and enforcement practice becomes crucial in successfully protecting your patent portfolio and other forms of IP rights.

    Whether you, or your clients, face litigation in Korea, or will potentially be facing it in the future, this webinar will help you understand the essence of Korea’s legal framework, analyse different enforcement options, and give advice on effective counter-measures.

    Recently, there has been a rise in allegations that the high costs of the patent litigation system in the US are being exploited to reach settlements even on low-value patents. This has led to concerns from technology companies as well as end-users that the patent system is impeding business development and innovation.

    Key to this debate is the question of damages in litigation: How are they awarded? What is proportionate? Are any changes in the law needed? In this webinar, our panellists will look at the issues raised by the troll debate, what strategies plaintiffs and defendants can adopt and what changes, if any, are needed.

    Whether you, or your clients, face threats from trolls, or will potentially be affected in the future, this webinar will help you understand the essence of the problem, how existing laws can already face these challenges and the consequences of new legislation on the issue.

    Speakers include:
    • James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP (moderator)
    • Eric E. Bensen, intellectual property author and independent consultant
    • Bryan W. Butler, IP Counsel, IBM
    • Charles R. Macedo, Partner, Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP

    The webinar will focus on patent trolls and damages, covering:
    • What is ‘troll-behaviour’, and what is acceptable?
    • How can existing laws be utilized to tackle the problem?
    • What is being done to change the situation, and will these initiatives be effective or harmful?

    With the troll issue being discussed around the world, there is still a lack of definition and clear understanding. This webinar will provide an invaluable guide for patent owners who are affected by this problem, or might be in the future, as well as their advisers. The live audience will be able to ask questions of the speakers during the webinar, which will be in English and will last one hour.

  • SUPREME COURT TO HEAR IN RE BILSKI: EXECUTIVE BRIEFING & OUTLOOK Recorded: Jun 30 2009 30 mins
    In a case closely watched by the financial services, software, medical and other industries, the U.S. Supreme Court will review the In re Bilski ruling that denied a patent for a method of hedging in commodities trading. In re Bilski largely disavowed the controversial 1998 State Street Bank decision where the Federal Circuit opened a floodgate for business method patents. According to its detractors, State Street had led to the issuance of weak patents and exposed financial services companies to high-dollar litigation over business method patents. Now the future of business method patents and processes is at stake when the Supreme Court hears In re Bilski during its next term.

    Join us as Raymond Millien of The PCT® Companies and Michael Lasinski of Capstone Valuation Services – both recently named to IAM’s inaugural list of the world’s top IP strategists – discuss how the In re Bilski decision has affected the IP marketplace, including:

    - Case Background
    - Summary of Recent Court Cases
    - Speculations on how the Supreme Court will decide
    - Effect on valuation of banks, hi-tech firms and start-ups
