At the recent conference staged at Harvard Law School on disruptive innovation, Paul Dacier, EMC’s GC lead who moonlights as President of the Boston Bar Association, focused much of his presentation on the importance of speed. Dacier, pointing to intellectual property as the company’s “lifeblood,” explained just some of the measures his group takes to protect the company’s four thousand patents, including big data apps that monitor EMC’s patent portfolio and compare it to new patent filings, identifying infringements in real time. Dacier then points to the fact that EMC has a “zero-tolerance” policy and “files lawsuits the same day” the infringements are discovered. The message Dacier and his team mean to send is self evident: “Don’t mess with us or you’ll regret it, and sooner rather than later.”
