Reconstructing Microsoft: the new Marshall plan

In 1992, Marshall Phelps took charge of IBM's drive to commercialise its IP assets. At the time, IBM was a net payer for IP. By the time Phelps left in 2000, Big Blue was bringing in approaching US$2 billion a year from exploiting its rights. Now that Phelps has joined Microsoft as its IP supremo, can he pull off the same trick again? By Rick Marsland

日本:国内

日本经济似乎已踏上缓慢复苏之路,但仍缺乏生机的经济依然影响许多专利行业。为适应国内专利申请数量下降的趋势,各事务所已对知识产权服务做出重新调整,以反映当前的市场动态。日本企业之间竞争加剧,导致诉讼案件增多;在许多人看来,这种趋势与传统的纠纷解决方式 — 依靠机智和自由裁量权 — 已是相去甚远。外国非执业机构日益增长的自信也推升了侵权诉讼的数量。同时,知识产权货币化也渐得宠,这在步履蹒跚的日本电子巨头中尤其如此:辉煌一时的技术专利正在被分类和出售给价高者,以确保重要的资本注入

Ripped off, mixed up (and burned out?)

There is plenty of music available online, from Eminem to Mahler. But no-one wants to pay for it. The ailing record companies have, until recently, wrung their hands but taken little action. A slew of lawsuits in the US against file sharers has signalled their intention to clamp down. By Adrian Preston

Patent challenges for nanotech investors

Patent portfolios are an essential element in any nanotechnology company’s business prospectus. The problem for investors is in deciding which patents are worth the paper they are written on, and which are not. The task is not made easier by the current problems the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has with nanotech patent applications. By Joff Wild

An international perspective on brand valuation and management

In all probability a brand is one of the most valuable corporate assets that an organisation possesses. It is unique. It is more than just a trademark or the iconography that appears on stationary or shop front – it is a source of competitive advantage in the market place and, ultimately, it represents a very powerful driver for shareholder value. By Adrian Davis and Lucinda Spicer

IP-backed securitisation goldmine or hype

Anyone familiar with the IP-value conference circuit will by now have heard about intellectual property-backed securitisation. Coming at a time when many companies are facing liquidity squeezes, attention has been focused on the previously untapped value residing in intangible assets and the ways in which these assets can be used to plug into readily available asset-backed debt funding. By Nigel Page

Patent mining in a changing world

Patent mining is one of the buzz words of intellectual property management and for many seems to promise untold riches generated from rights portfolios that would otherwise lie dormant. In reality, however, this is very rarely the case. Patent mining is no quick fix, neither is it a solution that will work in all organisations. But for those that are willing to take risks and invest time and money in the process, the benefits could be considerable. By Edward Kahn

Columns

Watching the overseers

The failures of companies like Enron and MCI have put the actions, and inactions, of managements under closer scrutiny. But despite all of the attention being paid to tangibles, intangible assets, such as patents - perhaps the area of more significant mismanagement - seem to be escaping any scrutiny at all
