“The 2020 Brokered Patent Market.” Richardson et. al. IAM Media (November 2020)

By | Publication | No Comments

A surge in NPE activity is beginning even as corporate buying is declining – time to hug your defensive aggregator.

After 10 years analysing the patent market, we have some very direct advice this year. If you are in-house counsel, to borrow a line from Samuel L Jackson: “Hold onto your butts.” These next few years are going to be tough. If you have not already signed up with a defensive aggregator such as Unified Patents, RPX, the Open Invention Network, the License on Transfer (LOT) Network or Allied Security Trust (AST), we recommend dusting off your defensive strategy and re-evaluating it.

“A Rapid Analysis of Intel’s Connected Devices Patent Portfolio.” Richardson. IAM Media (March 2020)

By | Publication | No Comments

Late last year, Intel resurfaced the sale of a connected devices patent portfolio that was sidelined during the $1 billion sale of the majority of their smartphone modem assets to Apple (which included a pile of cellular wireless related patents). Intel has opened the sale to operating companies, defensive aggregators and even NPEs (non-binding indications of interest are due from bidders at the end of this month). We were asked to review the remaining portfolio and determine how it fits with the buying needs of participants in the secondary patent market.
