Patent protection is an investment. In this webinar, learn how to maximize the value of that investment by identifying what to patent, how to patent it, and how to realize a return on the patents. We will also discuss managing patent costs and timing. And time-permitting, we will cover several examples of successful patent strategies in the optics industry, from Kodak v. Polaroid and beyond.
