In 1975 more than 80% of corporate market value was in tangible assets, while intangible assets—intellectual property—comprised less than 20% of market value. Today, the corporate value of tangible assets to intangible assets is the exact opposite. Intellectual property, such as patents, has become more valuable and important than ever before. At this presentation, three patent attorneys will discuss how patents are being monetized and strategies that companies are taking to maximize their intellectual property investments.
