Key considerations in transnational patent litigation

At first glance, the issue of transnational patent litigation appears to be of interest only to patentees, who are interested in designing a strategy to make optimum use of their intellectual property and to enforce their rights. However, this topic is equally important from the perspective of a potential defendant. As part of a comprehensive strategy, companies must consider weaknesses and strengths which may be used to defend against attacks from patentees. This may include actions outside the jurisdiction where a patent case has been initiated. A controlled escalation of a dispute can help to put an end to the whole dispute much more quickly than proceeding through an extensive litigation process.
