Exploring Collaborative Organizations that Pursue Freedom of Action for their Members

Speakers:

Herbert Kunz, Principal, Fish & Richardson
Eric Schulman, Principal, Fish & Richardson

In today’s dynamic IP landscape, collaborative organizations such as the License On Transfer (LOT) Network, OIN, AST and Unified Patents continue to evolve, and it can be challenging to keep informed about the various collaborative organizations and determine which, if any, of these organizations to adopt as part of a larger patent strategy. In this interactive session, you will hear from both the Managing Principal of Fish & Richardson’s Munich office and the founder of the License on Transfer (LOT) Network. They will address the following:

  • Are patent assertion entity suits going to become more frequent in Europe?
  • What is the License On Transfer (LOT) Network?
    • Not-for-profit mutual benefit corporation
    • Rapid growth – 6 members in July 2014 to 88 members in October 2016
    • More than 585,000 patents covered
  • Examine the pros and cons of the LOT Network
  • How does the LOT Network compare to other major collaborative organizations?
  • How can you integrate one or more such organizations into your overall patent strategy?
