Patent activity is increasing and patent agression entities are increasingly going after customers.

She'll give a top-level view of recent scholarly papers, discuss evolving strategies and global efforts to staunch the flow of settlement money. Although there is no silver bullet, a combination of promising strategies can eventually lead us out of this mess.
