The presentation is about a magic eight (ball). Not quite the answer machine you knew as a kid, but similar.
Today your clients expect outside counsel to manufacture answers on demand. Answers about extrinsic risks, expressed in terms of what client stakeholders are doing in legal, technology and business terms. And they may want you to bring the answers to the table before they commit to the firm. You can't just shake the old 8ball for answers but you also can't cost-effectively predict problems before they arise. Or can you?
Spend 45 minutes with Anaqua to hear from World Leading IP Strategist Barry Brager as he discusses 8 factors of insight you can bring to the table in your client development - far in advance of your next client win.

Do you know who is profiting from your IP? Leon will show you how you can:
• Identify when former inventors file applications on work done under your employment
• Determine if current employees are using your IP for other purposes
• Automatically monitor current and former inventors' filings
Managing IP’s next webinar, run in cooperation with Lecorpio, will take place on December 11 at 6pm (GMT); 1pm (EST) and will discuss strategies for using patents defensively and offensively.
In a patent-driven industry where being first to file is paramount, companies recognize the power of turning ideas into assets. More and more companies now choose to aggressively grow and diligently monitor their intellectual property (IP) portfolios, viewing them as critical business assets. Patent frontrunners IBM and Samsung have set the bar high by collectively securing more than 12,000 patents in 2013 alone. Moreover, over 75% of Google’s patents have been awarded in the last two years and the number of applications from the search giant as well as other Silicon Valley-based tech companies is skyrocketing.
But as companies race to create more IP, how do innovation leaders ensure that their patent portfolio is aligned to strategic priorities? This webinar will discuss how to manage and create a strategic patent portfolio with two innovation leaders.
•Dana Rao, Vice-President, Intellectual Property & Litigation, Adobe
•Douglas Luftman, Vice President, Innovation Services & Chief Intellectual Property Counsel, NetApp
•Bill Soward, COO, Lecorpio
•James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP (moderator)
Key topics will include:
•How to align the patent portfolio to business objectives
•Ways to operationalize the patent process
•Automating and systemizing IP
•Managing patents for offensive and defensive strategies
•Quality vs. speed
The webinar is free to attend and will last about one hour. The audience is invited to submit questions throughout the webinar, which will be answered during a moderated Q&A session at the end.
Discussions around IP are moving from the Legal Department to the boardroom. Being perceived as an innovative company has premium market value. Accelerating the patent process and effectively managing your company’s patent portfolio have become business imperatives.
A company’s capability to deliver innovation forms its IP Supply Chain. This process involves coordinating an increasingly complex combination of resources, talent and service providers to ensure that the IP supply chain is efficient and runs at a high level.
Pressures abound on IP managers to deliver ever greater levels of IP quality and output, all while managing resources under considerable constraints. However, much has been learned about optimizing supply chains that is highly applicable to the challenges of IP management. Global manufacturers have led an optimization revolution that has transformed the supply chain process. Both the core principles and practical applications from the “Lean” movement are surprisingly relevant, and there are many lessons that IP organizations can learn from manufacturers.
•James Nurton, managing editor, Managing IP (moderator)
•Greg Daines, vice president of client services, Lecorpio
•David Sundahl, Senior Research Fellow, Clayton Christensen Institute
The webinar will focus on how to optimise your IP supply chain, covering:
• In what ways is IP management like a supply chain?
• How do supply chains get optimized and what are the core principles of “Lean” processes?
• How to optimize IP supply chains to increase speed and reduce costs, without compromising quality
• Why optimization reduces complexity and makes IP management easier
• What are the Key Performance (or KPI’s) of IP management?
This webinar will provide an invaluable guide for IP managers who are facing the problem of having to deliver ever greater levels of IP quality and output, all while managing resources under considerable constraints.

Technology has transformed the ability to create quality content from long, linear iterations to a much faster dynamic process. As IP networking takes the momentum from traditional SDI-based workflows, we see that it also introduces greater functionality from virtualized workflows & flexible operation from anywhere around the world.

Prior to making an investment in a start-up, investors look to ensure that the team, product, and market aspects are all strong. They then carry out due diligence to expose and plan for potential risks. These usually include financial and legal risks, but more and more investors are focusing on intellectual property too.
PatSnap will be teaming up with Jon Calvert, Managing Director at ClearView IP, to discuss what aspects should be considered when beginning due diligence and how a rigorous approach can secure a greater likelihood of realising substantial investment returns.
In this webinar we will explore:
- What kind of intellectual property does a startup actually have?
- How do I know if the intellectual property position is strong?
- What kind of things should be on my intellectual property due diligence check list?
- How can I put a financial value on the intellectual property?

A lot has been made recently about using big data to gain a competitive edge. Perhaps the most familiar example was made famous in the book and movie Moneyball. The book examined how the budget conscious Oakland A’s manager, Billy Beane, used data to compete with the deep pockets of the New York Yankees and other rich teams. With one of the lowest payrolls in baseball, Beane was able to consistently field a winning team, including a twenty game win streak, the second longest in baseball history.
However, Beane did not create baseball stats. In fact, he used data that teams had been collecting for the previous 75 years. What Beane did was to look at the data in a new way and ask a different set of questions: What stats matter the most to win a game? Which players are the most undervalued?
Some in intellectual property management have begun to look at how data can be used to make their organizations more efficient. This webinar will examine how forward thinking IP organizations can use data to optimize their IP management process. Topics covered will include:
-What questions are important to ask?
-How do organizations go about collecting the data necessary to answer those questions?
-How should organizations use data to optimize their IP process?
Speakers will include:
Mark Bullard, VP Product Management, Lecorpio
Jared Engstrom, Senior Patent Attorney, Red Hat
