CHICAGO, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ICAP Patent Brokerage, a division of ICAP plc and the world's largest intellectual property brokerage firm, announces the Summer 2012 Patent Litigation Symposium and IP Auction will be held on July 26 in San Francisco.
Freedom to operate costs more than ever before. From the need to own larger and higher quality patent portfolios to the money spent licensing the rights of others, access to intellectual property is big business and crucial to the products we use every day. The soaring price is a result of the patent protection system in the United States, enforced by the courts and powered by pioneering inventors, visionary investors, and successful litigators.
On July 26th, ICAP Patent Brokerage will present a half-day and evening event featuring a slate of the most successful patent litigators, renowned for their big-dollar verdicts. Together they will share their insights on patent justice and the rights of inventors. Taking place in San Francisco at the Julia Morgan Ballroom, the event will begin with a noon networking lunch and conclude after dinner with the 16th ICAP Ocean Tomo IP Auction.
