Today, patents are being leveraged/monetized to support business strategies in many diverse and innovative ways across the globe. With business models changing by the day, important trends are emerging that affect patent strategy decisions, ability to win settlements, and in particular, how patents can be leveraged to generate additional value. Technology licensing and sales are becoming increasingly challenging as companies realize that patents can generate revenue rather than being a cost centre, and are accordingly making their responsible IP groups to drive revenue.
