With the increasing public awareness of patents, U.S. Congress actively considering patent reform, and the U.S. Supreme Court
taking on expanding numbers of patent cases, the pressure on innovation-based organizations to define and improve their intellectual
property culture is higher than ever before. The proper management of intellectual property assets is essential to a healthy
business, but knowing how to proactively protect IP assets is far from intuitive. IP laws are complicated and require nuanced
treatment by the executives in charge of making strategic deals and developing a company's assets. Intellectual Property Culture
is designed to help attorneys and executives build a business culture in which the development and management of intellectual
property is as painless and productive as possible. This Second Edition offers more practice tips, coverage of recent Supreme
Court patent cases, and new appendices featuring additional helpful and practical tools. With decades of combined experience
in both the law and business of intellectual property, Dobrusin and Krasnow deliver an excellent guide for any company seeking
to develop or improve its IP program.
Filled with illuminating examples and anecdotes from the authors' real-world experiences,
the book contains valuable practical advice along with sample agreements, notice letters, employee training materials, patent
status reports, IP policies, questionnaires, timelines, and other resources.
