This CLE course will provide guidance to patent counsel to understand the steps for identifying key patents and weighing the available options for monetization. The panel will offer best practices for implementing a monetization plan.


Unless you have a plan for how to use your patents, they can wind up simply as expensive pieces of paper. Instead, you can use patents as a significant source of revenue, whether from licensing, sale, settlements, or judgments. Most patent owners, however, are unaware of this. As a result, they leave the revenue that can be derived from those patent portfolios on the table.

And there are various ways that you can unlock the value of your patents, even if you do not have the capital do so.

In this webinar, you will learn about:

  • The wide variety of funding mechanisms for financing patent monetization efforts that require little or no up-front investment from the patent owner.
  • How patent owners can leverage such funding to engage in licensing or litigation effectively against large infringers in ways that would not be possible without external financing.
  • Strategies for building patent portfolios that are designed from the outset for maximum monetization value.
  • The types of patent monetization campaigns that are most appealing to funders.
  • The types of expenses a funder will pay for in a monetization campaign.
  • The growth of markets for selling and licensing patents without litigation.

The panelists, which include a patent attorney, patent litigator, and patent monetization funder, all with extensive experience in managing and monetizing patent portfolios, will explain a variety of approaches for generating revenue from patent portfolios, in an interactive discussion based on the most common situations they encounter. Bring your questions about the options that are available to you or your clients for an engaging conversation about the latest strategies for maximizing profit from patent portfolios.

Listen as our authoritative panel of patent attorneys examines the steps for identifying key patents, weighing the available options for monetization, and offers best practices for implementing a monetization plan. The panel will also examine legal issues commonly encountered and how the courts have addressed those issues.

  • What options are available to leverage the value of a company's patents for monetization?
