In this session, you will learn how to deconstruct a search topic into concepts, how to develop keyword and classification strategies for each concept for maximum comprehensiveness, and how to combine those strategies for maximum relevancy.

    Relativity: Patent Landscape Analysis: Practical Strategies for Any Budget  (Registration)
    … Whether you’re a solo IP practitioner at a growing start-up, or part well-funded team at a major global corporation, you need to know the landscape for your own intellectual property and your competitors. How do you know where to look? How do you balance your time between proactive and defensive strategies? How do you add value when this work may not be billable, but is still strategically vital? And finally, how can technology help you, without breaking the bank?
    In this webinar, we’ll discuss practical landscape strategies for outside counsel and in-house counsel, including creative ways to amplify your efforts. We’ll cover:

    • Think like a troll—what public information can be used against you and your clients? How does it read against existing patents?
    • How to organise your efforts
    • How to fit in this important work when time- or budget-constrained
    • How to evolve your approach as you and your clients grow—from start-up to global corporation
    • How do you manage a portfolio, think about acquisition and licensing, and protective purchases?

    IPlytics/IPWatchdog Webinar: Determining Essentiality for Standard Essential Patents: Challenges, Benefits & Solutions (Registration)
    One of the major challenges when licensing, transacting, or managing SEPs is that there is no public database that provides information about verified Standard Essential Patents (SEPs). Standard-setting organizations (“SSOs”) such as ETSI (4G / 5G), IEEE (Wi-Fi), or ITUT (HEVC/VVC) maintain databases of so-called self-declared patents to document the FRAND obligation. However, the SSOs do not determine whether any of the declared patents are essential, nor are the declarants required to provide any proof or updates. As a result, in course of licensing negotiations, patent acquisitions, or litigation, the question about which patents are essential and which are not, is one of the most debated when negotiating SEP portfolio value, royalties, or infringement claims. AI solutions support the process of understanding how patent claims relate to standards to assess larger SEP portfolios without spending weeks and months and significant dollars on manual reviews by technical experts and counsel.
    Spearkers: Gene Quinn, President & CEO of IPWatchdog, Inc., Mang Zhu, Chief IP Strategy Officer at ZTE, David Yurkerwich, Senior Managing Director at Ankura, David Barkan, Litigation Principal at Fish & Richardson, Daniel Weinger, a Member at Mintz, and Tim Pohlmann, CEO of IPlytics.
