IAM magazine is, in my opinion, the premier magazine in the space of managing intellectual assets for value creation. It brings a fresh, business-driven perspective, rather than a purely legal perspective, on this issue. I would highly recommend it to anyone dealing with how to manage and drive value from intellectual assets.
