The European patent market – where should investors look next?
A growing number of patent owners in the European Union probably have the potential to monetise their patents – but do they know the best way to go about this?
Today, most large EU companies within the high-tech sector – including Nokia, Ericsson and Philips – are already actively monetising their patent portfolios. However, when it comes to small and medium-sized enterprises (SME), it becomes more difficult to track patent transactions. This could be because transactions fall under the radar or are too small to attract attention.
