UIDP Webinar: Maximizing Value via Broad, Deep IP Strategies (2020)

January 23, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Patent strategies provide a plan for long-term strategic advantage and long-term revenue streams. While patent strategies are known to some, many are far narrower than they could be. A broad and deep patent strategy maximizes the value of a technology, extends the duration of competitive advantage, and maximizes the IP holder’s control of the technology’s use. If your organization does not use patent strategies, attend to learn why you should. If your organization does use them, attend to learn potential opportunities to better leverage them.

For an introduction to the approach, see this article.

Who Should Participate?

  • Technologists who seek to maximize the impact of and seek maximum value from their work
  • Managers who seek to understand how to maximize the return on investment from their organization
