IP Trends

Each year, U.S. corporations generate tens of billions of dollars in licensing revenue from their patent portfolios, with profit margins that typically exceed 90%. Yet many companies are in danger of becoming commodity businesses, or worse because of IP weaknesses and associated risks.

While individual inventors, small businesses and universities hold approximately 60% of all US patents, large corporations generate 99% of the associated IP revenue. Clearly, inventors and the research community have the opportunity to gain a larger share of the IP pie.
