Optimizing Patents and IP in Financial Products & Services

Strategic Approaches to Protecting and Profiting from Your Intellectual Property

Tuesday, June 06, 2006

About

The protection of patents and IP is critical to the financial services industry...
Do your IP policies insulate you from infringement claims while fostering development of new revenue streams?


With the increasingly competitive marketplace and the growing aggressiveness of trolls and others asserting ownership of business methods and IP, every financial services entity must pay more attention to IP protection than ever before. Not only must you take great care to avoid infringing on the patents of others—an almost impossible task given the hard-line patenting strategies pursued by many companies—but you must also ensure protection of your own innovation to remain competitive.

ACI's Optimizing Patents and IP in Financial Products and Services publication will provide you with strategies you need to develop, pursue and protect your business method and technological innovations. Learn the best techniques from industry leaders for:
  • Litigating infringement claims — as a plaintiff or defendant
  • Implementing processes that ensure the recognition and development of patentable business methods
  • Expediting your patent applications at the PTO
  • Gaining revenue from your patents
  • Updates from Washington: how legislation and litigation will impact your practices
