IPLaw360, New York (January 07, 2013, 11:58 AM ET) – As the economy continues to improve, corporations and venture capitalists will increasingly look for opportunities to invest cash. Often, such investments are made through mergers, acquisitions and/or equity investments in startup companies pursuing new and emerging technologies. Startups looking to ensure they share in the available investment dollars can do so by making their companies attractive to investors.

But, unlike traditional brick-and-mortar corporations, today’s startups sometimes are no more than a few entrepreneurs with novel ideas and minimal assets. In such situations, however, investors might be reluctant to provide significant funding for a number of reasons. One reason often is the startup’s inability to protect future market share by preventing competitors from copying its novel ideas. To protect ideas, increase value and make itself attractive to investors, therefore, a startup company should develop and implement a strategic patent filing plan that meets the company’s business goals and budget. Patents can play a significant role in attracting investments because they often are one of the most meaningful assets of a startup company.

Interview with Chomsky from India

Chomsky In First Person
In this exclusive interview, Noam Chomsky speaks to V.K. Ramachandran about the 'new war against terrorism', imperialism, the media and the role of intellectuals.
November 15, 2001: there is a break in the North East monsoon, and it is a clear, cool day in Thekkady. Noam Chomsky is on the second day of his first holiday in many years, a five-day break from pu...tle illegitimate authority and expand the domains of freedom and justice? The task, then, is not to 'speak truth' to the king, or even to the king's subjects, but to learn from them, to contribute what we can, and to participate with them in common struggle for values we discover and uphold. It seems to me that those are the directions in which responsibilities of intellectuals should be sought.
