Our Client & Their Goals
Our Client, a major manufacturer of mobile devices, had developed patented audio and video compression technologies, which can encode larger amounts of unique information within smaller packets of data. Our Client’s future market expansion would depend on their use of conflict-free patented technologies, and they wanted to ensure that their new solutions did not infringe on any existing patents. However, the patent space surrounding the telecommunications industry is complex, so they needed to quickly obtain an expert assessment of any potential conflicts.
In order to provide an attractive product, our Client also needed to license some fundamental technologies, including several widely used audio and video compression technologies. Therefore, they also required an assessment of the fair, reasonable, and non-discriminatory (FRAND) value of these patented technologies.
We helped our Client by recruiting experts capable of assessing their patents and providing them with the technological and financial analysis they required for ensuring sufficient patent protection for their compression technologies.
More than 100 conflicting patents were ultimately assessed, and our team identified all potential issues posed by these patents. Then, our team provided valuable recommendations to our Client regarding the best ways to address these potentially conflicting patents.
