The New Intellectual Property Marketplace
IBM presents a unique audio series entitled “The New Intellectual Property Marketplace.” The first episode in the series discusses the characteristics of the new IP marketplace, featuring Irving Wladawsky-Berger, IBM vice president of technology strategy and innovation.
Dr. Wladawsky-Berger explains the importance of patent quality and how the ability to share ideas stimulates innovation. He also describes the necessary characteristics of a functioning IP marketplace, including increased transparency, integrity, and mechanisms for establishing fair prices.
Future topics will include open source as prior art for US patent applications, broadening community review capabilities, adding certainty to the patent process and a discussion on the upcoming patent quality index.
