Practical Considerations in Valuing, Evaluating, and Enforcing Patent Rights
Created on June 24, 2021
Patents are core strategic assets for many organizations and their valuation may be paramount in providing freedom to operate within an innovative marketplace, protecting differentiating product features from being copied, and generating revenues to offset investments into research and development.
This presentation provides an overview of the basic tenets of patent protection and practical implications on the procurement, licensing, and litigation of patents. In particular, this presentation presents important considerations for determining the value of a subset of key patents in a patent portfolio such as the class of products or services covered, the scope of coverage afforded by the claims, and important claim construction considerations that impact patent valuation and enforcement.
