In the new ‘knowledge-intensive economies’ Intellectual assets increasingly play a key part on balance sheets. There is an increasing global awareness that in order to promote innovation and the growth of the economy, businesses must fully recognise and exploit their intellectual assets. A company’s ability to innovate rapidly and successfully is now regarded as essential and most breakthroughs are made by Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), usually with no in-house legal professionals to help them. It is essential that those working with or creating intellectual property rights (IPR) are aware of the basics of Intellectual Property Law. Intellectual Property Asset Management provides business and management students at all levels with an accessible-straight-forward explanation of what the main Intellectual Property rights are and how these rights are protected. Locating the subject squarely in a business context and using case studies and examples throughout drawn from a wide range of business organisations, it explains how an organisation can exploit their rights through licensing, franchising and other means in order to make the best possible use of their IP assets. This book will provide students with: • the basic Intellectual Property law knowledge needed to identify a potential IP issue • the tools and understanding to assess an IP breach • the ability to identify where the problem cannot be solved in house and where expert legal assistance is required • the knowledge required to work effectively with lawyers and other legal professionals to achieve the desired outcome

Have you ever had a great idea? Did you do anything with it? Don’t worry–you are not alone. Most of us have had great ideas but few of us ever do anything about them. This book will tell you what to do, how to find out if anyone has thought of it before, how to protect, develop, fund, and market it–regardless of whether it’s business, creative, or scientific in nature, and regardless of whether you are working in a large corporation or at home. Great ideas are the foundations of great businesses, but the bureaucratic nature of big business generally stifles the sort of individual creativity that leads to great business ideas. Ideation looks at the importance of innovation as a key driver of business success and posits new ways to encourage and nurture it in today’s business environment. Using case studies and firsthand interviews with innovators past and present, Ideation explores how individuals and companies develop creative ideas and bring them to full fruition. It provides practical, comprehensive advice for managing our big ideas so that we gain the most benefit from them–in our personal lives, our companies, and our society in general. For business leaders and entrepreneurs, Ideation explores the life cycle of ideas and explains every step of the ideation process. It provides unparalleled guidance on the vital subject of legal protections for ideas–including copyright, trademarks, and patents–and also covers the valuation of intellectual property as well as techniques for effectively marketing ideas to investors and licensees. With new strategies for building organizations that encourage the kind of creative thinking on which economies thrive, Ideation offers practical guidance on changing slow-moving business behemoths into fleet-footed innovators. Authors Douglas Graham and Thomas Bachmann present a blueprint for the effective management of ideas within the corporate structure, but also share their vision of a true marketplace of ideas in which ideas, capital, and markets are brought together in a global marketplace. This will give ideas a much better chance on their perilous journey from conception to realization. They make the argument that this will be the single most important thing we can do for our global economy and quality of life. In concert with the Ideation Web site (ideation registry.com)–which provides practical tools for developing and protecting ideas and also offers access to potential licensees–this vital, comprehensive resource helps individuals and organizations develop good ideas into wealth-producing intellectual property assets. It explores the process of creation from the various perspectives of psychology, finance, economics, and law, offering a comprehensive picture of how ideas are born and best exploited in modern business. Ideas are the basis on which we build our wealth as individuals, organizations, and a society; this book shows us how to nurture those ideas–and reap big rewards.

For many knowledge-intensive or technology-based start-up companies, the professional management of intellectual property (IP) is critically important. In fact, IP may be the main asset by which the value of a young company is determined and on which decisions to invest in the company are based - and so IP needs to be considered very early in the planning process. Intellectual Property: From Creation to Commercialisation provides a detailed grounding for innovators and researchers. The book starts with the source of innovation - that is, at the point where resourcefulness and creativity combine to develop new opportunities through problem-solving - and examines the critical steps that need to be carefully managed in the process surrounding the creation of IP and managing its development from concept through to exploitation. This involves the steps of identifying, capturing and assessing the value of IP. Useful recommendations for managing the transfer of IP from a research environment to the knowledge economy are provided and case studies illustrate pitfalls to watch out for. Readers can expect to gain a broad understanding of IP and the innovation process. Specifically, they will learn: > The benefits of implementing procedures to ensure that IP can be protected, managed and exploited effectively. > How to assess the most appropriate routes to market, such as licensing or sale of their IP, or establishing a spin-out company to deliver a service or product offering. > How to present a viable business case to potential funders and investors.
