Post-Alice/IPR patent purchase transactions: here comes a webinar

"Negotiating and Closing Patent Purchase Transactions in the post-Alice/PTAB Review Era" is the title of a free webinar which Lillian Safran Shaked (Shaked & Co. Law Offices) is running for patent research firm Patexia on Thursday, 12 November 2015. It begins at 10:30 am United States (GMT -07:00) Pacific.

According to Patexia:
Attendees will learn what the buzz words “patent monetization” actually mean and what entities in fact monetize patents (operating companies/NPEs). Attendees will further hear different reasons for the buying and selling of patents. The webinar will then present a few of the changes that have occurred in the market over the last couple of years (including, the Alice decision, PTAB/IPR proceedings, fee shifting) and the effects these changes have had on the market. In particular, we will discuss how such changes have affected the way patent purchase transactions are sourced, negotiated and drafted. Lastly, we will offer up some tips for how to successfully buy/sell patents in today’s market. 
Suggested Audience: Start-ups interested in gaining a further understanding of the pros and cons of holding patents, Operating companies interested in buying or selling patent assets, Venture capital professionals, Corporate counsel, CFOs and other IP and licensing professionals. 
Further details and registration here.

If any readers of IP Finance are going to be on this webinar and hear of any bright ideas and fresh perceptions, can they let us know so we can discuss them on this weblog?
