Direct Enforcement of University IP—A Case Study of UC Santa Barbara’s Enforcement of Patent Rights Against Retailers
10:30–11:30 a.m.
The University of California is enforcing IP developed at UC Santa Barbara related to filament LED technology through a large-scale litigation and licensing campaign. This campaign has several unique features, with actions pending in federal court and before the U.S. International Trade Commission. This session will focus on strategies for enforcing university IP rights, using the UC Santa Barbara campaign as a case study. We will discuss obtaining university support for an enforcement campaign, developing an effective enforcement strategy, financing the campaign, and taking control of the public message.
