An important part of IP strategic planning is an understanding of the litigation environment in the relevant technology space. When analyzing patent value and business risks related to IP management, it is imperative to consider the entities actively enforcing patents in a technology area, the types of patented technologies that are being enforced, the importance of copyright enforcement in the technology space, and the relative success of those litigation activities by plaintiffs.
