Apple v. Samsung.  Microsoft and AOL.  Kodak in digital imaging?  Google, Motorola, and Nortel.  Litigation everywhere.
Inventions are now bought and sold worldwide as businesses, institutes, agencies, and inventors seek to monetize their intellectual property, frequently through the sale or litigation of patents.  This seminar will begin with an overview of technology intellectual property - the concepts of copyright, trade secret, and patents, and then review the patent marketplace from several perspectives, discussing modern patent strategy along with several patent valuation approaches including key economic and legal factors.
