Although there is a growing global patent monetization market, the US still leads the patent monetization game. Recent US Supreme Court decisions cast a cloud on patent-eligibility of inventions in several fields in which there was always a massive patent activity, particularly software and life sciences. These decisions have a dramatic impact on the patent monetization market. Against this there is a growing global patent monetization market that may somewhat offset the down-trend in the US. The session will deal with these issues.
