Inventions as Assets

The executive leaders of today’s small-, medium-, and large-size companies report that patents are strategic business assets and are supportive of all the benefits that they provide—including protection, exclusive rights, and innovation. Yet an IP divide exists between companies’ support of patents and their ability to utilize patents for business benefit (source). IV shares the belief that patents are valuable. That’s why we put our invention assets and intellectual property (IP) capabilities to work for our customers through portfolio licensing and complementary value-added solutions.
