BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - May 20, 2010) -  A free seminar on how to strategically build and monetize patents will be held by Wolf, Greenfield & Sacks, P.C., an intellectual property law firm, on June 17 in Boston.

Extracting value from patents -- or monetization -- begins with obtaining the right patent portfolio and then moves on to choosing the best strategy, including licensing and enforcement activities, to produce ongoing revenue.

Panelists include executives with Cote Associates, Rembrandt IP Management LLC, NewRiver Inc. and Yet2.com. Wolf Greenfield panelists chair the firm's electrical & computer technologies, litigation, and licensing & transactions practices.

Attendees will learn about:

  • How to strategically develop a value-oriented patent portfolio
  • Mining a patent portfolio -- how to recognize patents to monetize
  • Licensing or selling patents -- closing the deal
  • Patent enforcement -- monetization through litigation
  • Funding patent litigation -- full or partial contingency litigation and third-party investors

The session will be held 8:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. at The Liberty Hotel in Boston. Register online at http://tinyurl.com/2azunh4.
