About the Authors
  • No longer is intellectual property (IP) just a necessary expense for large technology companies. Competing and succeeding in today's marketplace requires an in-depth understanding of IP--its use as a weapon, as a shield, and as a monetizable asset. Yet in a world where fortunes can rise or founder on the strength of an IP portfolio, hesitation to enter this world still abounds. This book equips the business manager with a working, practical knowledge essential to creating and exploiting IP wealth. It shows investors how to evaluate IP strength and competitive value.

    • Surveys basic mechanisms for protection of intellectual property - patents, copyrights, trade secrets and trademarks - and guides the reader through their strategic exploitation
    • Case study approach
    • International scope

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Frank covers a lot of ground in Intellectual Property for Managers and Investors ...But at a slim 165 pages, the book is manageable; its practical guidelines are crisply laid out. And in the somewhat murky world of IP management, that is most definitely a plus."
    Suzanne Stevens, Corporate Dealmaker

    "This book will be a welcome addition to any development lab’s library and should be required reading for senior managers who work in business development. It would also make an excellent reference text for an in-house IP seminar, repeated at regular intervals."
    Reardon Smith, NPDP, CMC, Journal of Product Innovation Management
