Overview (Program Summary)

ACC Houston November Chapter Meeting CLE Webinar
Managing Patent Assertion Entity Threats in an Era of Patent Reform
November 9, 2021 | 12 pm - 1 pm | 1.00 hrs CLE (TX)

DESCRIPTION
Patent assertion entities (PAEs) drive over half of all US patent litigation. No longer limited to high tech, businesses in retail, entertainment, health care, energy and other industries face patent licensing demands from PAEs. Assessing risk and options involves a daunting interplay of legal, technical and business resources. Yet a number of legislative, judicial and administrative reforms with teeth are in effect. Private sector initiatives now give businesses even more leverage. In this contentious patent landscape, a range of new options and tools are available to savvy businesses. Businesses can now proactively and even reactively manage PAE demands and enhance freedom to operate.

Notes

The Association of Corporate Counsel (ACC) is a global bar association that promotes the common professional and business interests of in-house counsel who work for and whose primary responsibility is providing legal advice to corporations, associations and other private-sector organizations. Accordingly, the ACC Houston Chapter reserves the right to limit attendance at any of its Continuing Legal Education (CLE) events to ACC Houston Chapter members or non-ACC chapter member in-house attorneys only. If you are not an in-house attorney and wish to attend a CLE event, you may only do so, space permitting, if you are accompanied by an in-house attorney from your company or organization.

When you participate in a ACC or ACC Houston event, photography, audio and/or video recording may occur. By participating in the event, you grant ACC Houston and other entities as ACC Houston may designate from time to time (“ACC Houston Parties”) the right to create, use, distribute, broadcast, edit, or otherwise disseminate the photography, audio and/or video recording from the event that contain recordings of you or your likeness (collectively “Recordings”) without any further review or approval from you, in whole or in part, throughout the world, in perpetuity, in any and all media now known or hereafter developed. This grant to the ACC Houston Parties includes, but is not limited to, the use of the Recordings either alone or together with supporting materials, such as video or supporting information.

Examples of permitted use of the Recordings include displaying the photographs as thumbnails on a ACC Houston website (e.g., www.acc.com/chapters/houst or acchouston.starchapter.com); utilizing the Recordings on ACC Houston Parties websites or print publications.

In addition, you understand that ACC Houston is not obligated to use the Recordings in any way. You agree that the rights granted herein are irrevocable. You further agree that you have no ownership rights in the Recordings and are due no royalties or other compensation whatsoever related to the Recordings.
