Overview

From Assets to Profits Competing for IP Value & Return

Innovation is a fight for survival. When it comes to cashing in on new ideas, the right business model can make the difference between success and failure. Today's well-equipped managers and investors must learn how and when intellectual property rights like patents and trade secrets become business assets, and which strategies provide the best return on them.

Edited by IP communications expert Bruce Berman, and with contributions from the top names in IP management, investment, and consulting, From Assets to Profits: Competing for IP Value & Return provides a real-world look at how intellectual property assets work and the subtle and not-so-subtle ways in which they are used for competitive advantage.

Bruce Berman's acclaimed From Ideas to Assets: Investing Wisely in Intellectual Property introduced IP as a business asset; his follow-up book, Making Innovation Pay: People Who Turn IP into Shareholder Value, looked at patent licensing as a strategy for business owners large and small. Now, From Assets to Profits: Competing for IP Value & Return reveals how a deeper awareness of intellectual assets is forcing many businesses to rethink their approach to capturing innovation and generating profit. Visionary and focused, this important book demonstrates how you can identify valuable intellectual assets and discover the most effective business models for them—especially those that are appropriate for particular IP holders.

Not all IP rights are assets, but identifying which ones are—and then appropriately monetizing them—is a challenge, whether you are an IP manager, senior executive, investor, entrepreneur or a so-called patent "troll." Authoritative and insightful, From Assets to Profits reveals the most relevant ways to generate return on innovation, with advice and essential guidance from battle-tested IP pros.
