     "Patent Webinar: Techniques For Achieving an Efficient And Effective Freedom-to-Operate Analysis".

    A patent gives its owner the right to exclude others from the invention claimed in it but does not give the owner the right to make, use, or sell that invention in the marketplace. The purpose of a freedom-to-operate (FTO) analysis is to ensure that the production, use, or sale of a new product does not infringe the patent rights of others. While there is no legal requirement for a company to obtain an FTO opinion before taking a new product to market, doing so can nevertheless provide a number of advantages to companies both large and small.

    Join Fish Principals Michael Hawkins and Paul Western on Wednesday, June 3, 2020 as they discuss the legal and practical considerations that can prompt a business to seek an FTO opinion from patent counsel. They will also address commonly asked questions, such as:

        When to conduct an FTO analysis
        What formats can be used to communicate the results
        How to use the results
        How to improve efficiency during the FTO analysis

    Note:  A webinar would be recorded and posted on the FR website [48 hours] after event.
