The first conference specifically focused on the NPE community and the business of responsible licensing is to be hosted by IAM in New York early next year. The event will cover a range of topics - from the legal and policy climate to the new opportunities opening up in different sectors and regions of the world – all from the perspective of entities whose primary business is patent and technology licensing.

In its early years the unitary patent system will be an option in the EU, but not the only one

The European unitary patent and the unified patent court system through which it will be enforced are well on the road to creation. In a series of articles running through June and July Alan Johnson, a partner at UK law firm Bristows, discussed a number of issues that actual and potential patentees in Europe must consider when developing strategies for the new regime. And as those who read them will know, it’s all rather complicated – tp say the least (links to all the ...

Your in-house IP heroes to debut in the 2015 edition of the Strategy 300

Since 2009 the IAM Strategy 300 (formerly 250) has been identifying the world’s pre-eminent IP thought leaders and value creators. These individuals have been nominated by their peers and then, following tough scrutiny from the IAM editorial team, selected from a longlist for inclusion in the final publication.  To date, we have limited nominees so that only individuals providing a service to IP owners - whether as a lawyer, broker, aggregator, financier, consultant, or ...

Korea event offers more proof that IP financing is a big issue in Asia

The inaugural Asia IP Business & Finance Conference (AIPBF) was held at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Seoul on Friday. It brought together IP owners and prospective investors to discuss the capital-raising possibilities of patents and other IP assets. What made this conference different from other events with ‘IP’ in the title was its audience, the vast majority of whom were newcomers to the world of intellectual property. Delegates were largely drawn from Korea-based ...

Big US tech companies face major patent losses in the post-Alice world, IAM research reveals

The potentially catastrophic effects of the Alice v CLS Supreme Court decision on the patent holdings of the US’s biggest technology companies are laid bare by the IAM blog today.

Japan and Korea outstrip US in innovation creativity stakes, says development bank

I have been in Seoul this week meeting with local IP strategists from the corporate, intermediary and finance fields. Like IAM’s recent visits to Japan, it has been a fascinating trip and has given this correspondent a fresh insight into Korea’s rapidly evolving IP marketplace. I will write at more length on what is happening in the country next week, but one of the key takeaways so far is how keen the government is to prioritise IP creation and value realisation. This ...

Headline patent litigation figures in Japan may not tell the full story

Everyone knows that patent litigation in Japan is unusual and that when a dispute does end up in court the chances are that the plaintiff is not going to come out of it feeling very good about life, right? In fact, it was an issue that was discussed by Terry Ludlow of Chipworks in a presentation that he gave during the recent IPBC Japan in Tokyo. This, he suggested, might reflect many Japanese companies' unwillingness to be as aggressive as they could be in seeking to ...

The flotation is expected to raise $21.8 billion. Shares will be traded under the ticker symbol BABA. Alibaba is by no means the first Chinese company to trade on US markets.

Intel acquires more patents to boost its smartphone strategy

We’ve known for several yeas that Intel’s focus on the secondary patent market is to bolster its patent portfolio in the mobile space as the company struggles to establish a foothold in the smartphone sector. In 2011 the chipmaker lost out to the Rockstar consortium in the bidding for the Nortel portfolio. It followed that setback soon afterwards, though, with the 2012 acquisition of a large portfolio from InterDigital for $375 million and last week it was announced that ...
