MIT has this program on entrepreneurship – with Bill Aulet as the managing director of the Martin Trust center for MIT entrepreneurship. In fact, he's written a book on the topic.

You are weighing that number against a third element: what a court or a jury would likely find – both as regards guilt and as regards damages. Will you succeed in your infringement or product defect claim, and what is a jury likely to award? And then ask yourself, what will it cost you and the other side in money, resources, and time, to go to court? After that it’s a matter of finding an attorney that will take your case on terms that you can afford.
