Launched in late May 2009, IP Knowledge Kaleidoscope is the latest of IPOS' initiatives to assist businesses in identifying, protecting and commercially exploiting their intellectual property. The Kaleidoscope is primarily a series of factsheets containing relevant information on various aspects of intellectual property. The first factsheet on "Licensing of IP Rights as a Business Tool" is available for download here.
Also, patent owners looking to licence their rights may endorse their patents accordingly. In return, they get a 50% reduction on renewal fees. In order that interested licensees may easily search for these patents, IPOS has now put together a list for convenience. More information is available here.
