High-level insights on how best to prepare your patents for sale were revealed in IAM Market’s first-ever webinar

IAM Market, the online marketplace that brings together buyers, sellers and licensers of valuable intellectual assets, patents and technology, held its first-ever webinar on readying patent portfolios for sale on September 15, welcoming nearly 200 individuals from a range of backgrounds including operating companies, universities and research institutions, non-practising entities, brokers, law firms and other service providers.

Hosted by IAM editor Joff Wild and Kent Richardson, partner at Richardson Oliver Law Group (ROL), the webinar was brimming with high-level insights on how best to prepare your patents for sale.

Richardson told webinar attendees that in addition to advising patent owners on selling their assets, for the past five years he and colleagues Erik Oliver and Michael Costa have published an annual overview of the brokered patent market for IAM . “We started to track asking prices of all patents on the market. We’re tracking about $11 billion in private and public or quasi-public deals.” To read more on this story, click here .
