Now that I have briefly described the litigation process, I would like to address some of the special considerations that go into defending against infringement allegations in a lawsuit. The first aspect of a defense that I would like to discuss is the value of a non-infringement opinion. The second aspect of a defense to infringement allegations that I would like to address is procedural considerations. The third aspect that I would like to address is other defenses. The final aspect is counterclaims.

These topics will be the subject of upcoming blogs.
