Cipher User Conference 2016: a rallying-point for IP analytics believers

Cipher Users can get together
and compare experiences
While working in IP analytics can be a rewarding experience both intellectually and financially, it can also be a depressing one. This is because so many sectors that could really benefit from it remain ignorant and, one sometimes feels, wilfully blind to the significance of patents and other IP rights in developing new products and services, identifying and fending off competitors, negotiating strategic licences and effectuating successful mergers and acquisitions. Institutional and private investors may lack the degree of understanding that enables them to appreciate the significance of IP within the range of assets held by a recipient of funds, while the deeply-embedded, long-established practices of financial institutions hark back to a bricks-and-mortar era when intangible assets were accorded little or no importance on the balance sheet or beyond it.

It is thus with great excitement that Aistemos welcomes like-minded souls, sensitive to the importance of IP in general and the role of IP analytics in particular, to this year's Cipher User Conference on Thursday20 October. 

Topics covered include the use of Cipher for corporate transactions, in patenting strategy for the purpose of competitive landscaping. Speakers include such respected figures as Phil David (ARM Systems) and Lucy Wojcik (Ocado); confirmation of the participation of Matt McBrien (BAE Systems) is awaited. Various Aistemos folk will also be offering their thoughts and reflecting on their experiences over the three years since the company came to life.
