Price determination of intellectual company

Price determination of intellectual company

The BBC ran another article in a tired meme about evil patent owners supposedly “costing” billions per year.  Of course, the article doesn’t specify who supposedly bore this $29 B “cost” or how it was calculated, but instead cites a Boston University paper by Professors James Bessen and Michael Meurer.   According to the BBC article, “Intellectual Ventures, one of the highest-profile NPEs, was not available for comment.”  However, an IV spokeswoman told Gametime IP that she was surprised by the article and that the BBC had not, in fact, reached out to them for comment.  Fortunately…

What is Human Resources Department all About?

The HR department insists that a pregnant colleague will not get a single day of her maternity leave before her due date. Keeping in mind that due dates are always approximate, this puts her in danger of going into labor right in the classroom. I’m sure the HR department sees some educational value in a professor’s waters breaking in front of students, but I’m not sure what it is. I also have no idea why one of the six weeks of the paid maternity leave cannot be taken before the due date. HR departments suck something fierce everywhere. Ours, for instance, is really horrible…

Goodwill explanation

THREE THINGS THAT MAKES NO SENSE TO ME Three things that have been in the news recently, one on a national level, one on a state level, and one on a local level make no sense to me. Here are, in brief (and a lawyer is never brief), are my 3 conundrums 1. An Episcopalian doctor, a Jewish nurse, and a Muslim custodian work at University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor and an Episcopalian doctor, a Jewish nurse and a Muslim custodian work at St. Joseph’s Hospital several miles away in Ypsilanti. Both doctors, both nurses, and both custodians make the same income as the other…

Brand financial reporting

Brand financial reporting

As most IR professionals know, branding is much more than a logo. Where investors are concerned, branding is essentially the way a stakeholder would describe your company to a potential investor. Brands can be influenced by actions and performance, and reinforced with consistent messaging. Brand messaging should outline the driving force of the company, its basic values and goals. The aim of an investor brand is to put day-to-day information into context and help emphasize the big picture. This can sometimes make a difference in shareholder retention, especially in regards to…

What is patentable software?

I have been writing quite a bit lately about those nasty patent trolls who contribute nada to innovation, force my clients to spend valuable resources on sending me to court (when I could be negotiating productive business deals), and otherwise make my favorite judges overworked and cranky when I do have a legitimate reason to seek judicial review of something. Evidently the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) got the software community’s memo and decided to do something about it: In January, the USPTO announced the Software Partnership, a partnership between USPTO…

What is Patent portfolio?

About four years ago, I wrote a paper on how one should think about patents and patent portfolio - “What’s your patent portfolio quotient? ” Companies often misunderstand patents and IP and waste an awful lot of resources on securing the wrong things and fighting the wrong battles. If patent strategy is integrated into the product and marketing strategy, companies do well. Given the cut-throat competition in the mobile space, it is even more critical to formulate good strategies. It is a good time to revisit the paper. Having seen the complete lifecycle of a patent from birth…

What is Organizational Learning Culture?

By Bruno Raynal, Blue Thinking Not all learning requires a formal educational setting. Although the term “organizational learning” refers to education, it involves much more than participating in traditional learning environments such as classrooms. Organizational learning is complex and takes place within the workplace. It is a daily occurrence that allows employees within an organization to contemplate, interact, participate, and observe how to do their job more effectively. Simply put, organizational learning can be defined as acquiring and applying knowledge, skills, values…
