The book examines the costs, risks, and benefits of patent litigation in the most litigious and commercially developed countries in the world. It includes objective patent litigation data, including time and cost to trial and patentee win rates, and provides a formula for putting a dollar value on filing a patent lawsuit anywhere in the world. The book also analyzes the procedural and substantive differences between different legal systems and includes distinctive “at a glance” charts allowing for clear cross-country comparisons. The Second Edition also refines and expands on the analysis provided in the first edition of the book, and adds new country chapters for Belgium, Denmark, Mexico, Norway, and Sweden.
