Selling patent portfolio: A

The following is excerpted from a May 2, 2011 article by Josh Long published at vision2mobile:

Bankrupt Nortel Networks Limited has moved closer to selling its vast portfolio of patents and patent applications.

The company announced on Monday that Canadian and U.S. courts have approved a “stalking horse" asset sale agreement with a Google subsidiary, Ranger Inc., for a purchase price of $900 million.

The orders from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware and the Ontario Superior Court of Justice also establish bidding procedures for an auction that allows other qualified bidders to snatch Nortel’s patent portfolio from Google by offering a higher or otherwise better offer.

Kent Walker, senior vice president and general counsel of Google, indicated in a blog last month that the acquisition of the Nortel patents could dissuade the company’s competitors from suing Google for patent infringement.

Although Google has advocated for patent reform, “one of a company’s best defenses against this kind of litigation is (ironically) to have a formidable patent portfolio, as this helps maintain your freedom to develop new products and services, " Walker wrote.

Startup basics
1. Determine what you will be selling and graph your vision in numbers;
2. If you are developing a new product review “To Patent or Not”
3. Determine actual costs – including your time –
4. What the customers will be willing to pay (Key factor!) eBay closed auctions.
5. Create simplified five-year spreadsheet (forecast): Sales less cost of material...The Law of 250”. This will be the real reason for your success. (Google it now, before doing anything else!)
11. If you are selling or prospecting online, sign on with Google’s pay per click and load it with as many keywords as you can imagine. If your market is local, Google Local – it’s free. Make the most of Craiglist, mostly free.
To be continued if you think this is of interest.

Hey, cool response. Let me counter your counter.

In general, pharmaceutical companies make the bulk of their profits by selling new drugs before their patents expire.
Intellectual property only exists because the government enforces the patent system through laws and regulations.
I submit the argument that cer...ficially monopolistic environments, and thus if given the choice, would favor the presence, rather than the elimination, of government in their affairs.
