An Update on Global Patent Enforcement for Licensing Professionals

Date: Thursday, 9 July 2020

Time: 3:00pm – 4:30pm (CET) / 9:00am - 10:30am (EDT) 

Zoom Recording

In 2018, LESI’s Dispute Resolution Committee (DRC) had provided a comprehensive comparative study in view of recent trends in global patent enforcement, such as the decline in the number of infringement actions in the US, the rising importance of Europe, with Germany as the leading jurisdiction in terms of numbers of cases, as well as the growing interest in these actions in Asian jurisdictions, particularly China. The study was conducted for more than 1.5 years by internationally renowned patent litigators covering ten jurisdictions -- namely the US, DE, FR, NL, UK, ES, IT, CN, JP and KR.

This online seminar will discuss current trends (competitor vs. NPE litigation; patent pool activities; “hot” technical areas) related to this study, as well as revisit several key aspects as it relates to litigation in the United States and Europe -- e.g., forum shopping, availability of injunctive relief and preliminary injunctions, level of damages, timing, statistics, as well as offensive and defensive strategies in multi-national matters.

Covered jurisdictions: US, DE, UK, FR, IT.
