  • Blockchain and IP Management

  • How can we Manage an Ever-Growing IP Portfolio so that we can readily use it in different contexts?

  • How can we Simplify the Evaluation of Our Assets as the law changes?

  • How to Communicate IP Value to Your Business Teams?

6:45-7:35 pm
"Innovative Tools and Processes for Managing IP Portfolios"
Companies have large portfolios and different rights/obligations. How can we keep track of our assets, and the corresponding rights and obligations? How can we effectively use existing tools? How can we input data so that it's most helpful in different contexts? What data should or should not be written down? How can we mine our portfolios? How can we keep better track of what IP belongs to what technology groups? How can we work with the USPTO to improve efficiencies in the patent process?
