In the whole patent litigation, infringement contentions are the real challenge to the patent owners. Infringement Contentions lay the foundation for infringement theories put forward by the patent owners. Proper handling of Infringement Contentions is required to solidify your case. Mishandling might lead to weak infringement arguments and nullification of the case.
