Mitigating IP Risk
Intellectual property risk has grown substantially in recent times and conventional searches are often not practical.
IP licensing has increased as a source of high margin revenue, but indemnity mechanisms for sharing risk have not adapted with the times.
Litigation is now prevalent in the technology sector and NPE risk (aka patent trolls) is hard to estimate.
