Issues Discussed: It wasn’t that long ago that protecting intellectual property or IP 9trademarks, trade secrets and other intangibles afforded legal protection and, in particular, Patents) was primarily the preview of technology and pharmaceutical companies. But because of accelerating technological advancement patent activity and the patent wars and expanding their domain into previously untouched sectors industries in the path of these accelerating technologies now find themselves grappling with an urgent need for IP fluency.

From banking to health core to retail, technology is enabling a fundamental change of value propositions business models, supply chains, and business operations. It has recently became so pervasive across industries that it is barely noteworthy to suggest that almost every company is, to some extent, a technology company.

The convergence of these two forces –technology acceleration and patent reform has created an urgent need for business leaders to reassess their IP strategies this urgency is magnified for sector that have not traditionally thought of themselves as technology companies and often do not possess the requisite IP knowledge or expertise required to effectively utilize IP in both offensive and defensive strategies.
