Lunch and Learn: Patents in an Open Source/Collaboration Age
Protect your investments, understand your rights, be proactive on any partnerships or open source work. You spend a considerable amount of money and resources developing things that have value to your company. It follows that you should want the maximum leverage value out of those efforts. Protecting and leveraging your intellectual property, regardless of whether it is patents, trade secrets, trademarks or copyrights, is the first step in defining the value and protecting the usage. When working in partnerships or open source, IP brings value, credibility and potentially other business uses. And you can enforce patents against organizations using it outside the open source project.
