Patent transactions in the ICT sector and why Europe is lacking behind
The Patent Booster catalyst invites you to a lunch presentation on Wednesday 13 February at 12.00-14.00 at the the Co-Location Centre in Berlin. Seats are limited, and lunch sandwiches will be served.
It is well known that ICT companies are very active in the patent market. Patents have moved into the spotlight during the past couple of years - mainly due to high-stakes litigation and acquisitions involving international giants such as Apple, Samsung, Google and Microsoft. However, European companies have a lot to learn when it comes to patent monetization. The United States is the only country where patents are being sold in the billions of dollars, and where courts issue damages awards in the hundreds of millions. Europe does not deal in such numbers at present, but it does own a significant number of patents in the United States with a hidden value to the patent market.
During this presentation we will uncover the latest development in recent patent transactions in the ICT sector. We will also compare the European and US markets to reveal what Europeans should do to avoid missing out on potential revenue streams, and become a competitive market player.
Part 1: Patent transactions in the ICT sector
Part 2: Macro economic factors relevant to patent monetization in Europe
