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. Denaro also has experience in wireless protocols and devices, VOIP protocols and systems, optical data storage and ASIC design.
