Chicago, IL (Vocus) February 19, 2010
ICAP Ocean Tomo, the intellectual property brokerage division of ICAP plc (IAP.L), today announced one of four program tracks for the upcoming IP Think Tank event on March 24-25, 2010, in San Francisco, California. The tracks are focused on exploring the next generation of intellectual property (IP) development.
“IP-based investing is now widespread,” states Dean Becker of ICAP Ocean Tomo. “This track aims to provide an update on the new investment opportunities that are gaining traction in today’s recovering economy.”
The Investment in IP track will follow ICAP Ocean Tomo’s recently-developed IP Think Tank conference model, beginning with panelist presentations on subject matter, including mark-to-market valuation, royalty securitization, and hedging IP-based investing. The program then continues with a collaborative panel and audience discussion, wrapping up on day two with a presentation of the session by the track moderator.
Moderating the Investment in IP track is Bruce Berman, CEO of Brody Berman Associates, and editor of From Assets to Profits – Competing for IP Value & Return. “ICAP Ocean Tomo has gathered an excellent group of thought leaders for this track’s panel,” states Berman. “The level of discourse for this track is going to be very high.”
Other IP Think Tank program track topics include: The Growing Intangible Asset Marketplace; Developing a National Intellectual Property Economic Infrastructure; and IP Nation – Economic Development through IP.
