les09wmlogosmall.gifThe Licensing Executive Society (LES) 2009 Winter meeting will incorporate the professional aspects of licensing and how they exemplify licensing as a culture…a global culture.  Licensing opportunities exist on a global scale, and LES members are increasingly called up on to develop and manage Intellectual Property around the world.

Licensing professionals globally deal with the same product—intangible assets of Intellectual Property. Licensing professionals must be able to communicate across international borders, appreciate the impact of different languages, ethics and cultures. In addition, they must also be able to maneuver within the matrix of laws, policies and practices that exist in different nations, organizations and industries.


“Detecting Patent Infringement” A Holistic, Global Approach,” a panel discussion at the LES 2009 Winter Meeting that will investigate the best practices and methodologies used by the most aggressive licensing companies to fully protect their patent portfolios.
