This podcast is aimed at in-house lawyers of companies that could potentially be sued by non-practising patent holders in the US, or 'patent trolls'. We interview Robert Pocknell, a legal advisor from Origin who has particular expertise in dealing with IP litigation and patent infringement claims brought in the US.
