Monetising Your Intangible Assets

In our last newsletter we looked at how organisations can make the most of their intangible assets. In this issue we expand on some of the points we raised there, including M&A transactions and licensing with a focus on how the world of monetisation is evolving.

The Annual International IP Business Congress in June highlighted a sea change in attitude towards those non-practising entities (NPEs) who are now monetizing large IP portfolios.  The introduction of new tax strategies relating to IP and a recognition that IP has now become mainstream in some sectors and the press, is introducing a new dimension to IP at Board level.

Like other specialist areas within an organisation, IP needs to be closely aligned to the business goals, and while this may seem obvious, in practice it doesn’t always happen. We discuss the importance of this in the articles below where we reflect on the outputs from thought leaders in the IP Industry and Coller IP’s activities in response to the new IP agenda.

Do let us have your feedback on the newsletter, and please tell us what you would like us to cover in future issues. Please Email your comments to us at Coller IP.    Jackie Maguire, CEO – July 2012

It is not likely that I shall say anything new here today. If I do, it will be of only minor significance. In all of my remarks, to paraphrase an old quip, the important will not be new, and the new will not be important. For statesmen, historians, and philosophers have been thinking, speaking, and writing on the general subject, of which my topic is a part, for nearly...rms of government man has yet devised. Our Founding Fathers thought so too, and the wisest Romans had already come to that same conclusion. So I am in excellent company. It is company which we hope more and more Americans will join. To that end we are saying everywhere we can, and asking all of you and tens of thousands to say with us: This is a Republic, not a Democracy. Let's keep it that way!

In the shadow of the collapse of Communism, and very far from the public eye, a debate over what is a desirable economy has rekindled among a few who cannot convince themselves that human beings are not deserving and capable of better than capitalism. In the past de... industries the full social benefits of their innovation will be both realized and spread to all workers and consumers.
The faster the adjustments are made, the more efficient and equitable the outcome. On the other hand, the more rapid the adjustments, the less the 'material incentive' to innovate and the greater the incentive to 'ride for free' on the innovations of others. But a partici
