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.
Barry is a Certified Licensing Professional that brings a unique combination of expertise in entrepreneurship, analytics and marketing to the firm’s diverse teams, tools and techniques. In his role, Barry helps clients fully leverage innovation and IP strategy with a range of Expert Services from IP creation to IP monetization that have supported decisions related to billions in IP transactions.

In 2015, the Australian Government commissioned a 12 month public inquiry into Australia’s intellectual property system. The subsequent report in 2016 outlined a number of recommendations, which, if implemented, may require amendments to existing legislation. In this exclusive webinar, Director General of IP Australia, Patricia Kelly, will explore the Australia Government’s response to the report, and its implications for the future of intellectual property in Australia.
Patricia will also share insights on:
• IP Australia’s role in shaping the effectiveness of this reform
• How this will impacted Australia’s IP and Innovation landscape
• How IP Australia supports Aussie innovation
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

• 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.
With the year approaching its end, many IP departments will be looking at how best to rationalise their work for 2018. This webinar explores how to ensure your trademark portfolio is in the best possible shape using a two part verification and audit process to save you time and money on your IP assets, as well as analyzing your current and planned costs and guiding your filing strategy in the new year.Read more >

Abstract: Can you afford not knowing how bad your provider's IP reputation is? How likely are IP addresses adjacent to you of being infected with malware or participating in botnets?
NSFOCUS has been tracking the reputation of IP addresses globally by ASN for over a year and recently released the August 2017 Global IP Reputation report. Some interesting patterns have emerged worldwide as the number of IP addresses added to reputation lists continues to increase due to Mirai, WannaCry and other malware infecting the Internet of Things.
NSFOCUS SecLab is tracking IP reputation across 9 categories, including SPAM, DDoS, botnets, and web attackers. This talk will present global IP reputation trends and rank the countries with the worst IP reputation…and it may not be China.
Battery technology powers devices around the globe and innovation are key to the power and storage economy. The use of big data is ubiquitous.

Open Source Software is now broadly used in the development of software applications. The ability to reuse components of code already created allows development teams to create more code, with more functionality, faster. It also promotes the adoption of standards and makes applications more interoperable.
With the increasing adoption of open source software in software development there is an increasing need for organisations to understand free and open source software licensing obligations and compliance issues.
PatSnap will be joined by Martin Callinan, Founder of Source Code Control. Martin has over 20 years’ experience providing organisations with strategies to manage business risks associated with open source software such as IP compliance, security vulnerability management and procurement. He is actively involved in the open source software industry to help create best practices and industry standards for the adoption and management of open source based software through organisations such as TechUK and OpenUK.

This webinar will cover:
•Attributes that make a good leader

In many organisations, there is a widening gap in the communication between these departments; R&D may invent something with the intention of filing a patent only to find out later from the IP department of pre-existing IP which renders their research (and costs) effectively wasted.
Here at PatSnap, our clients often tell us that the two teams can no longer work independently, so we thought we'd explore how to improve communication between the two divisions.
We will be joined by Laura Schoppe an industry expert from the world of R&D and IP, and get her insight into the five most important things the two teams should never hide from each other.
This webinar is essential viewing for any innovation leader, across any division looking to improve cross team collaboration and flexibility.
