Settling The IP Litigation Case: A Great New Blog Resource

By Pete Salsich III

As should be pretty obvious from most of the posts on this blog, we like to focus on new cases, new industry developments and new technology and how all those new things fit in with old (or at least older) legal constructs.   Today I want to draw your attention to a new resource that focuses on the old practice of settling cases.

I recently discovered The IP ADR Blog, a new blog hosted by Victoria Pynchon, Michael Young, Les Weinstein and Eric Van Ginkel, a group of well-respected alternative dispute resolution specialists in Los Angeles.  The blog focuses exclusively on IP litigation/ADR-related issues such as licensing structures, negotiation and IP asset valuation, all with an eye on getting litigating parties out of the courtroom and back to business.  Often one of the biggest challenges we face when advising clients involved in IP disputes is not letting the legal issues get in the way of seeing the business realities.  From what I've seen so far, The IP ADR Blog looks like it's going to be a great resource in meeting this challenge.

As Victoria Pynchon says in one of the first posts on the blog:

"Collaboration and reciprocity are the by-words of the blogosphere and the key to the settlement -- or the effective management -- of complex IP litigation."

I agree -- and in that spirit, I look forward to joining the dialogue and learning from these authors.
