From Ideas to Assets: Investing Wisely in Intellectual Property
by Bruce Berman
From Ideas to Assets provides a comprehensive overview of key business topics in intellectual property. The book features expert contributions from more than twenty-five top investment bankers, venture capitalists, licensing executives, financial analysts, corporate and outside patent attorneys, and valuation experts. These thoroughly researched contributions are presented in four broad sections: Identifying and Understanding Intellectual Property ; Exploiting Intellectual Property; Measuring Intellectual Property Performance; and Intellectual Property Transactions and Finance. Each section provides readers with both essential background information and fresh perspectives on current trends and developments. More than one hundred graphs, charts, and diagrams, many never before presented, help to illustrate and clarify concepts for busy readers. A handy data bank section and more than fifty annotated Web sites and URLs provide IP-business information not readily available.
The book explains how innovations, in conjunction with legal rights and market demand, form business assets, which is especially true in the areas of information technology and medical science. In addition, From Ideas to Assets presents techniques for placing a monetary value on such assets. Though focused primarily on patents, the book also covers trademarks, which affect brand names, and several other important areas of intellectual property, including IP licensing and securitization.
