Webinar: Identifying and Pursuing Patent Infringers - Using Technical Evidence to Build Your Assertion campaign
At its heart, an assertion campaign relies on Evidence of Use (EoU), to demonstrate the existence of ongoing infringement. If no one is using the technology covered by your patent portfolio then your patents are not as valuable. Conversely, when there is EoU the value of a patent portfolio is greater.
(Semiconductor Engineering) Battery-powered electric vehicles are expected to reach a milestone in terms of shipments in 2019, but the technology faces several significant hurdles to gain wider adoption in the market.
