But the patent law expert does not expect Congress to make major changes in federal laws in an effort to crack down on so-called "patent trolls."

In a video interview recorded at the RSA Conference 2014, Denaro:

  • Defines the term "patent trolls" and sizes up the current legal landscape in the patent arena;
  • Provides an update on potential Congressional action;
  • Offers advice on action to take in light of the risk of lawsuits.

Denaro is a registered patent attorney who advises clients on offensive and defensive applications of intellectual property. He has particular expertise in information security and cybersecurity technologies, and is a frequent speaker and writer on the subject. He has experience in a broad range of information security technologies, including intrusion detection and prevention, botnet investigation, malware discovery and remediation, and symmetric and asymmetric cryptography.
