Peter Vanderheyden, COO, RWS IP Research
Join RWS IP Research COO Peter Vanderheyden for a live webinar on how crowdsourcing your prior art can serve as a best practice for your IP research. What was once a novel and uncertain methodology has been reliably used to kill bad patents in litigation, monetize patent portfolios and even provide competitive analyses. In 40 minutes, we will discuss:
•Why crowdsourcing is particularly suited for infringement cases, monetization efforts and even competitive intelligence;
•A walk through of results illustrative of a crowdsourced search;
•How RWS uniquely approaches the crowdsourcing process for purposes of finding prior art;
•How technology plays a role and the advantage of our AOP Connect™ platform;
•How crowdsourcing can help you to efficiently and effectively manage discovery risk and confidentiality; and more.
