The Technology Patent Network NORTH AMERICA will be held February 21, 2019, in San Francisco, California. Director Ryan C. Richardson will moderate a session entitled, "Litigation Focus: Key Considerations for FRAND Patent Licensing Strategy." 

The changing global patent landscape, combined with unceasing advances in technological  innovation, means that there have rarely been more exciting times to be responsible for protecting and exploiting tech patents. The explosion in innovation has resulted in a tech patent sector which now provokes many more questions than answers. The San Francisco conference will take a broad global view of the patent protection landscape and then delve deeper into the topics of specific current interest.
