An Interview with David R. Jarczyk

David R. Jarczyk, President & CEO of ktMINE, was recently asked to sit down for an interview with Lynn Fosse, Senior Editor at CEOCFO Magazine. The resulting interview is available to read on their website HERE. The interview revolves around ktMINE’s data, the industry in general and various uses IP has for professionals around the globe. Questions include:

Commercialization: A Case Study

For many, commercializing IP is a time-consuming task.  It is also necessary to generate revenues and keep organizations at the forefront of research and innovation. However, without access to the right information, the probability of failure exponentially increases. Historically, licensing professionals have had to spend hours looking for potential licensing partners, comparable deals and similar patents. Many individual

Intangibles, Market Data and the OECD’s Action 8 Guidance

Authored by David R.

Drivers of IP value – the most active companies in intellectual property revisited

Authored by David R. Jarczyk, John Wiora and Danielle Lambert. Findings previously presented in issue 61 of IAM dispelled the myth that patent count is the only information needed for a strong and valuable IP portfolio. This year, an update of that research is taken further by providing examples of IP portfolio management and the gathering of competitive intelligence. Versions Published
