Why you should read Intellectual Property Strategy

The world of intellectual property (IP) can be a scary place, where giant firms face off against their competitors, acquiring mammoth IP portfolios to intimidate others and discourage patent infringement lawsuits. Or it can be a place of shrewd investment and careful nurturing of assets. Harvard Law School professor John Palfrey examines the high-stakes IP world and suggests IP strategies to optimize organizational performance. getAbstract recommends Palfrey’s worthwhile guidance to all managers seeking to understand their IP assets and to maximize their profitability.
