The first PR has been released on a new online auction and clearinghouse for patent and trademark rights. Roger Shashoua, the founder of IPR Connections™, stated the firm will provide an alternative for industry, inventors and other owners of patents and trademarks to connect through licenses with partners worldwide. “IPR Connections’ objective is to be the first organization in the new product and technology transfer field to provide globally comprehensive information on intellectual property."
The problem with efforts such as these from a valuation perspective is the secrecy that enshrouds auctions and license deals. IPBlog will monitor this endeavor as it evolves in hopes that it will yield useful data.
