Legal definition of Patents

As reported here earlier this week,the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has revised its Green Guides,guidance to marketers for the use of certain terms so as to prevent deception in the marketplace.

The lens through which to view IP in developing, African countries is seemingly cloudy and speckled with shades of gray. In these locations, IP may appear at the forefront or as a non-consideration in economic transactions. For example, while traveling in Moshi, Tanzania I noted bootleg DVDs and designer watches were available at a local, open-air market. Around the corner from the market, multinational corporations with core brands, such as The Coca Cola Company and Barclays PLC, were selling goods and services.This juxtaposition makes business decisions involving IP challenging…

Intellectual Property Valuation Examples

Valuations can’t be performed in a vacuum. Regardless of the type of property involved, a valuator’s conclusions depend on many factors, including the scope and context of the engagement, the standard and premise of value, the type of ownership interest, and applicable law. These factors are particularly complex for intellectual property (IP) valuations. Why? Because an appraisal of IP assets may be required in a variety of contexts and involve different bundles of rights. And the value of IP can depend on applicable statutory law, which defines its useful life and establishes…

A few months ago, iHub Research published this great infograph on Innovation Spaces in Kenya. The infographic shows that there has been an increase in the number of places where entrepreneurs can get nurtured and really improve their ideas. It is also impressive to see the diversity in terms of sectors that are addressed and also the participants in the industry. Involvement of public institutions is especially impressive and it will be interesting to see what comes of the university incubators. While this warrants excitement, I am left wondering what is being done to develop…

Intellectual property theft Punishment

It is good that the New York Times has a Public Editor to keep an eye on the ethics of the paper. But sometimes this seems a bit like a make-work position and valuable column space is wasted chastising Times staffers for minor missteps. That was the case on Sunday, when Arthur Brisbane -- the current Public Editor -- took business columnist Joe Nocera to task for a conflict of interest around a piece he wrote on Hewlett-Packard's new CEO,  Léo Apotheker. Here's the back story. Apotheker is coming to HP from his job as CEO of SAP, a German software maker that…
