Each year, RPX brings together an intimate gathering of the patent industry's top IP decision-makers who are setting the agenda for industry collaboration and transformation of the patent market. We are pleased to invite you to join us for this exclusive event by the beautiful shores of the Pacific to mingle and exchange ideas with your peers.

This year, our feature presentation will be on NPEs' increasing focus on jurisdictions outside of the US for patent monetization. Recently, US-based NPEs are turning to Germany, the United Kingdom, China, and other foreign patent systems to enforce their rights, as well. Is this a trend?  What should be done about it? This session explores those questions and more, particularly with respect to Germany, the jurisdiction that appears to be emerging as a favorite of NPEs. Our roundtable discussion will review RPX data and include insights from Doug Croxall, CEO of Marathon Patent Group and Rufus Pichler, Partner at Morrison & Foerster LLP.
