On June 26, 2012, PLI will be hosting a one hour briefing entitled, “Buying Patents by the Pound: Today’s Patent-Acquisition Boom and Tomorrow’s Antitrust Consequences”. The briefing will feature Charles S. Crompton of Latham & Watkins LLP, and Ronald S. Laurie of Inflexion Point Strategy, LLC.
The panelists will discuss the forces driving the current strategic patent acquisition market, market developments that can be expected, how a potential market participant can prepare for antitrust scrutiny, and the possible approaches taken by the courts and regulators.
The question of how to value a patent portfolio as a whole, as well as how to value a patent “per pound”, remains tricky for many on the financial analysis side of the equation as well as for patent attorneys who recognize the value of a patent in both the present application as well as its future potential.
Be sure to hear these relevant issues discussed on June 26th, from 1pm to 2pm! To register for “Buying Patents by the Pound: Today’s Patent-Acquisition Boom and Tomorrow’s Antitrust Consequences,” click here.
