CFO Insights — Reassessing IP strategies in a disruptive age

Published on: Oct 23, 2014

It wasn’t that long ago that protecting intellectual property (IP) was primarily the purview of technology and pharmaceutical companies. But because of accelerating technological advances, patent activity and the patent wars are expanding their domain into previously untouched sectors. At the same time, the United States also has experienced a fundamental shift in how IP is managed and monetized.

The convergence of these two forces — technology acceleration and patent reform — has created an urgent need for business leaders, including CFOs, to reassess their IP strategies.

This issue looks at how technology has disrupted the patent process, discusses the current legislative responses, and outlines the nine dimensions of a robust IP management process.
