 FRONTEO Co., Ltd. will hold an online seminar "Funded Patent Litigation Investor Financing for Patent Exercise" on December 12th, co-sponsored by law firm Sughrue Mion, PLLC.


 Over the last few decades, the market value of S & P 500 companies has been largely due to intangible assets, including intellectual property.Today, intangible assets can account for more than 80% of market value compared to book value in many technology companies.While some companies have sufficient capital to manage and exercise their intellectual property, companies without capital cannot manage and exercise it and cannot fully realize the value of their intellectual property portfolio. Hmm.


 U.S. and foreign investment firms take this untapped potential as part of their financial risk by providing legal funding instead of the investment firms getting some of the proceeds from exercising their intellectual property rights. Or we see it as a highly profitable investment opportunity to undertake everything.With the potential for litigation financing, companies have the means to monetize their IP portfolio without taking financial risk.This webinar discusses and discusses the basic methods of financing patent proceedings and the key strategies companies should adopt when considering such opportunities.
