Building Company Value with Cybersecurity Patents

The crucial differences between diamonds and Fool’s Gold
Aired on Monday, Feb 8, 2021

Join the senior partners of Fennigan to learn how to make your company’s patents valuable, enforceable and marketable

Cybersecurity patents can be worth billions of dollars, as demonstrated in the recent historic court ruling in a lawsuit filed against Cisco. To achieve great value like that means having to invest up front in developing strong & strategic patents. But companies often fail to appreciate the need to invest properly in a patent strategy at the earlier stage of developing new inventions. Those companies take a “check-the-box” approach to patent registration that focuses solely on “obtaining patents”. These “check-the-box” patents typically suffer from preventable errors in the drafting and prosecution process—errors that can erase all value and render the patents worthless.

In this online webinar, Finnegan partners Elliot Cook and Jeff Berkowitz will explain the crucial differences between the diamonds and the rough. Join us to learn how to make your company’s patents valuable, enforceable and marketable.
