We’ll go beyond the basics of IP to cover how a sophisticated approach to identifying IP already existing in your business can protect your technologies and create a profit center of monetized IP assets. IP identification also forms a source of business intelligence to make better strategic decisions, including potential partnerships or evaluating innovations. An informed IP strategy can be used to create and secure a competitive advantage, particularly in IP and patent-driven industries.  In addition, as a key part of IP strategy, it is important to understand IP enforcement and the current trends in IP enforcement. This talk will cover how to identify and use your IP, including hot topics in IP enforcement, to take your business to the next level through a more savvy approach.
