Intellectual Property in the New Age - An Expanding Universe
Intellectual Property is a subset of a broader business and property rights concepts. Our goals in assisting clients to enhance their business practices include:
1. Identifying, understanding and capturing the value of Intellectual Capital
2. Converting Intellectual Capital to Intellectual Assets
3. Distilling Intellectual Assets into Intellectual Property and,
4. Protecting the resulting Intellectual Property

These concepts, as identified by James K. Sullivan and the ICM Group, can be further researched in the excellent reference “Profiting from Intellectual Capital: Extracting Value from Innovation”, Sullivan, James K. , John Wiley & Sons 1998.
