Concurrent Track 1
Keep Your Eye on the Ball — Working in a Patent Scrum
Cathy Kodroff, Howson & Howson, LLP, Blue Bell, PA 
A patent scrum is a technical area which includes a few basic patents and a number of follow-on patents owned by different entities. Patents for important technologies are more likely to be subject to interference or derivation proceedings and benefit from extra care, such as more extensive prior art searching, description of multiple embodiments and claiming from different perspectives. These inventions, however, are often made by start-ups who don’t have a lot of money. This presentation addresses identifying and prosecuting an important invention, fitting a new invention into the patent scrum and navigating the scrum during licensing and litigation.
