Intellectual Property Strategy for Technology Companies

This course focuses on the actual day-to-day intellectual property issues faced by a technology-based company. Each class covers a different aspect of an intellectual property practice, including such topics as the establishment of a patent program, intellectual property licensing, the intellectual property issues arising during merger transactions, responding to patent infringement assertions, interactions with standard setting organizations, and managing patent litigation. Where appropriate, the course provides interactive exercises that simulate scenarios commonly faced by an intellectual property attorney, including the negotiation of patent cross licenses, the drafting of intellectual property representations and warranties, the generation of intellectual property disclosure and licensing policies, and the identification and prioritization of patentable inventions. Guest speakers are invited to provide the benefit of their perspectives and experiences on the various topics.
