How to Avoid Pitfalls & Better Communicate Results
Professional patent analysts and consultants invest considerable effort in preparing accurate and insightful analyses. However, generally less effort is expended in the presentation and communication of the output to its intended audience. This can have a detrimental effect on the impact of that work – effectively neutralizing it. How can you ensure the output of your work is useful, more impactful, and worthwhile?

Patent Strategies - 4 Key Things Executives Need to Consider
What are the most relevant insights that can be derived from patent analytics? CEOs, CFOs, CTOs and General Counsels make many decisions every day, but do they have the most relevant information to make decisions regarding patents and innovation? During this exclusive on demand webinar, industry experts, Gene Quinn and James Pooley focused on the business implications of patents and innovation. They discussed the information decision-makers need to have and why.
Learn what insights every executive has access to through patent analyses, but might not be using effectively in their business decisions in this webinar.
Using Non-Patent Literature (NPL) to Improve Patent Quality
The task of sifting through repositories of prior art to locate the closest reference is time-consuming and challenging. Patent examiners who are spread out across a number of different sets of claims tend to favor references they are familiar with because they do not have the benefit of an examination process in which search is bifurcated from examination. Not to mention, a large percentage of applicants are expected to drop out after search. The EPO, which is recognized as setting the standard when it comes to patent quality, uses a very different process for generating prior search. Still, US patents can benefit from the EPO's processes when the same case is prosecuted in the US and in EPO.
In this webinar, renowned Law Professor and former White House Senior Advisor, Colleen Chien revealed techniques she has developed.

Patent System: Will the Pendulum Swing Back Towards Patent Owners?
Part II in the "Patent Masterminds: An Innography Series" Hosted by Gene Quinn
Over the past 10 years, the patent law pendulum has been swinging with increasing speed, and in a decidedly anti-patent direction. As we approach the second anniversary of the monumental Supreme Court decision in Alice v. CLS Bank, has the patent system reached a turning point? The Supreme Court has heard oral arguments in Halo Electronics, Inc. v. Pulse Electronics, Inc. (14-1513) and Stryker Corporation v. Zimmer, Inc. (14-1520) and patent litigation is again on the increase. While no one seems ready to declare that a market bottom has been reached, a sense of optimism has returned to the patent market and experts agree it is time to start buying selectively again. As part of our Patent Mastermind Series, Gene Quinn was joined by Rudolph Telscher , a partner with Harness Dickey & Pierce who represented Octane Fitness at the Supreme Court, and Robert Rauker, CEO of Medicinus IP and former Senior Vice President of Acacia Research to discuss whether we are close to an inflection point.

Cuozzo Challenges Inter Partes Review - So What?
Part I in the "Patent Masterminds: An Innography Series" Hosted by Gene Quinn
While Inter Partes Review (IPR) post grant proceedings may have had the best intentions, there have been numerous concerns raised against a procedure that has been viewed by many as uniquely slanted against the patent owner. Just recently, the Supreme Court agreed to hear Cuozzo Speed Technologies v. Lee, a case that will require the Court to address pertinent questions associated with Inter Partes Review (IPR) proceedings and could fundamentally alter the IPR system. Several objections have lead commentators to question the fairness of IPR proceedings and whether due process is being afforded to patent owners. As part of our Patent Mastermind Series Gene Quinn hosted a live webinar to discuss the current state of IPR, review the current statistics and trends of IPRs, and what the Supreme Court hearing this case means for the future of the IPR proceedings.

Inter Partes Review, Proposed Changes, and the Controversial Implications of the Kyle Bass Petitions
According to the Patent Stature, "[a] person who is not the owner of a patent may file a patent to institute an inter partes review (IPR) of the patent. The lack of standing requirements to initiate an IPR has lead to an unanticipated, novel strategy conceived by hedge fund manager Kyle Bass. Critics of Bass say he is abusing the IPR process for financial gain, something the statute did not intend. Join webinar host Gene Quinn, Editor of IPWatchdog.com and guests Erich Spangenberg, who some have described as “the most notorious patent troll in America” and Q. Todd Dickinson, former Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office and current partner at Novak, Druce.
Transforming Intangible Assets into Tangible Profits
A deep dive discussion on the proper balance between imagination, vision and technical feasibility with Patent Attorney and Founder of IPWatchdog.com, Gene Quinn, and IP business strategists Ron Laurie, David Pridham and Jin Kim. Corporations that must answer to shareholders do not have the luxury of blind pursuit of innovation without having a reasonable anticipation of success. For that reason corporate decision makers tend to stay well grounded, typically pursuing innovation only after examining practicality, workability and production costs. Of course, by its very nature innovation requires at least some imagination, a vision for the future and risk taking. The key, however, is to have the right proportions of each, which is easier said than done.
Freedom-to-Operate Misnomer: Methods of Providing an Opportunity Analysis
Freedom-to-Operate (FTO) analysis has always been used as a valuable role in IP strategy because it allows a company to identify, minimize, and manage risk while identifying areas where patent coverage is absent. However, there are many misnomers because of the searching limitations. It is important to understand that FTO analysis does not guarantee your safety from being sued. In this webinar, Attorney & Partner at Cesari & Reed, LLC., Michael Reed, and Sr. Data Expert at Innography, Maneesha Joshi, showed alternatives you can begin to utilize right away to gain an upfront advantage.

Surviving Alice in the Age of Software Innovation
In June 2014, the United States Supreme Court issued its decision in Alice v. CLS Bank, setting off a whirlwind reaction. A unanimous decision held that the software patent claims in the case were drawn to a patent-ineligible abstract idea, and thus they were not eligible for a patent under Section 101. Alice has since been used to reject patent claims as being patent ineligible by the Federal Circuit, numerous district courts, the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), and patent examiners at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The uncertainty around the Alice decision is perhaps best exemplified by the diamterically opposing opinions reached by the Federal Circuit in Ultramercial andDDR Holdings. Listen to US Patent Attorney Gene Quinn during this free Q&A and discussion on the effects of Alice. You'll learn how you can draft claims differently to help ensure patent eligibility, identify patents that will not be negatively impacted, and respond to rejections based on Alice.
