IP Litigation Financing: Risks and Benefits for Universities

When it comes to fighting against patent infringement, most schools cannot afford to go the distance to protect their IP in court. Infringers are well aware of this unlevel playing field, and they make a strategic calculation that the risk of a legal challenge is less than the cost of a license. In most cases, they’re right: Universities do not have the financial resources to defend their valuable patent rights and obtain fair value for the use of the technology they worked so hard to develop.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. With the advent and growth of litigation financing options, universities can level the playing field and fight back. The results can be not only huge dollar awards, but also a stronger firewall against infringers.

To help university TTOs and administrators understand and evaluate this strategy, Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has teamed up with litigation financing expert Russell J. Genet of Longford Capital to bring you this critical webinar: IP Litigation Financing: Risks and Benefits for Universities.You’ll learn how to monetize your university’s IP rights through a financed litigation approach, creating a level playing field against deep-pocketed infringers without risking a big hit to university coffers.
