How does one decide where to sue if litigations can be contemplated in multiple countries? Consider a corporation with a national patent in a designated economic regional forum whose international competitor own a legal (but later) patent in their own country– what is the end goal of the corporation? Market entry or ownership? What are the chances of success? For that matter, what is considered success? Invalidation? Infringement? Licensing potential? The answers are ‘I don’t know, ‘ ‘Kind of,’ ‘No, ‘ and ‘Maybe’ –in any order you wish. There is no simple answer.
