Brian Batzli Speaking at 8th Annual Corporate IP Counsel Conference

March 24, 2016
Location:

New York, NY

Overview

Brian Batzli, CEO and Managing Partner of Merchant & Gould, will be a featured speaker at the 8th Annual Corporate IP Counsel conference, held March 23-24 in New York City.

Brian, along with Burch Harper, VP and Deputy General Counsel of Rambus, will present on the hot topic of "Monetization-Licensing Issues in View of U.S. Exhaustion Law." Given the court's attention on these matters and an expected decision early in 2016, this topic is of high relevancy to the IP community. 

Monetization-Licensing Issues in View of U.S. Exhaustion Law
Thursday, March 24
8:15-9:05 a.m.

The Lexmark case taken on by the Federal Circuit this past autumn holds significant impact on the design, management, and implementation of licensing strategies and is certainly a case to watch in 2016. The current patent exhaustion rule, that overseas sales do not exhaust a patent owner’s right to sue within the U.S., might be expanded as a result of the final ruling.

  • Incorporate measures into licensing strategy to maximize your U.S. and foreign patent portfolio
  • Manage license and patent monetization activity in light of potential expansion of the rule
  • Implement licensing strategies thoughtfully and proactively to ensure IP protection
