Companies frequently purchase or license technology from a vendor, which may include factory equipment, enterprise software, e-retail services, merchandise and more. But, what happens if you are accused of infringing a third-party’s intellectual property rights based on your use of that technology? Whether your company is negotiating or renewing a license, service agreement, purchase contract, or a similar instrument, it is critical to consider if and how these agreements protect your company from third-party infringement claims. 
 
In this webinar, Seyfarth IP Litigation attorneys will address important considerations for negotiating and drafting intellectual property indemnification and defense clauses, which are often overlooked until it is too late. The speakers will also discuss strategic options for your company to consider if it is named in an intellectual property infringement lawsuit.
 
The topics covered include: 
  • Recent Trends in Non-Practicing Entity/“Patent Troll” Litigation; 
  • Intellectual Property Indemnification and Defense Clauses; 
  • Limitations of Common Law Warranties Against Infringement; 
  • Lawsuit Checklist:  What to do if your use of a technology leads to an infringement lawsuit; and 
  • The “Customer Suit Exception”
