IV published their portfolio of approximately 33,000 assets at the end of 2013. We then compiled and analyzed further information on the US assets in their portfolio in order to get a better picture of the portfolio as a whole. This data includes assignment records for the transfer to IV ownership, from whom the asset was assigned, the age of assets in their portfolio at the time of transfer, priority dates of assets, if an asset has been litigated, and the technical areas most of each asset.

This data can be used to evaluate the risk IV poses to a particular field or company based on the percentage of their portfolio in that field, the litigation history, and the expected expiration of assets in that field. This information will guide business decisions on building a defensive portfolio, making cross-licensing agreements, and inform negotiations of licenses with IV.
