As Japanese businesses continue to expand into volatile global markets, they are facing major changes in the U.S. IP landscape, which can create challenges to the businesses' strategies.*

Pressure is mounting on patent owners and those accused of infringement to find ways to stay agile. This is especially true regarding new developments in the areas of patentability, Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) procedures, and damages including fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory (RAND/FRAND) terms and obligations for standard essential patents (SEP). Today, it has become increasingly important to arm yourself with timely information and practical insight.

Please join us for the 2015 Tokyo IP conference entitled, The U.S. Market and Beyond: New IP Strategies for Success, where Foley attorneys with global experience will lead discussions on these issues.
