Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) December 1, 2004
Already, the media is digging to scoop Âbest of 2004Â feature stories that rank the Ârichest Â Â, the Âfastest growingÂ, or the Âmost successful Â Â people, companies, and technologies. Beneath the glitz, one will discover that the root of many of ÂBest of 2004Â lists lie at the oft perplexing crossroad where economics, science and law converge to create business paradigms.
PatentCafe, publisher of global patent data, enterprise patent research software and invention resources, launches IPFrontline, Intellectual Property and Technology Magazine for engineers, scientists, researchers, entrepreneurs, patent professionals, corporate product and marketing managers, inventors and technology investors.
The IPFrontline focus is on news, trends, technologies, laws, policy and provocative social issues related to the discovery, exploitation and protection of invention.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, United States Supreme Court Justice once said: "a patent is the most complex legal document there is." Intellectual property is todayÂs fastest growing area of US law, yet making intelligent business or investment decisions based on patents remains just as complex and mysterious as it was in HolmesÂ day.
Each weekly issue of IPFrontline explores the increasingly dynamic field of intellectual property rights, and helps demystify patents for non-patent professionals such as product developers, researchers, venture capitalists, technology investors and marketing managers, to entrepreneurs and CEOs in high tech and venture capital backed start up companies and Fortune 500 Chief Executives.
IPFrontline is also a powerful new entrant into mainstream intellectual property law publications, offering proprietary content not available elsewhere. The magazine publishes patent trend data based on nearly 8,000 patents issued each week by the US Patent and Trademark Office. The real-time patent charts online track patent trends of 14 key industry segments, as well as patent performance of the Top 200 companies and patent law firms. Patent reports for the electronics, aerospace & defense, pharmaceutical, software, and 10 other industries are updated in real-time.
For patent law professionals, the magazine includes searchable Federal and State Case Law libraries without ever leaving a patent infringement news story.
Andy Gibbs, PatentCafeÂs CEO notes that Âintellectual property accounts for more than 70 percent of the market value of the Fortune 500, and nearly 90% of NASDAQ-listed companies. IPFrontline bridges the knowledge gap between the Âpatent insidersÂ, and financial, marketing, and other non-patent professionals responsible for exploiting intellectual property to build shareholder value.Â
IPFrontline incorporates the latest interactive magazine technology including article Blogs, and RSS news feeds, and spirited IP perspective by a new cadre of OP-ED thought leaders, including noted professors from the Franklin Pierce Law Center, repeatedly ranked by US News and World ReportÂs as the nationÂs top-ranked intellectual property law school, a past director of the US Patent and Trademark Office, and intellectual property magazine columnists.
Op-Ed Columnist for the magazine's technology section is Dr. Joseph Monaco. With multiple BS, MS and Ph.D. degrees across theoretical physics, electrical engineering, physical chemistry, computer science, neurobiology and astrophysics, Dr. Joe's "Synaptic Gap" provokes thoughs and feedback through his column Blog.
Gibbs, also the IP News OP-ED columnist, says ÂIPFrontlineÂs unique articles and features deliver unparalleled depth and breadth of information for patent professionals, and at the same time makes timely patent information digestible and usable for non-patent professionals. The fresh editorial perspective explores the logical relationships between patents, invention and commerce.Â
