As a licensing executive, what should you do when unexpected events invade your routine?  How should you handle the letter from a licensor demanding an audit?  What should you do when a letter arrives in the mail accusing your company of patent infringement?  What steps should you take to respond to a third-party subpoena?  Who do you call if you are served with a complaint?
