My Intellectual Ventures Inventor Profile

*** This post has been moved to my other blog, Reisman on User-Centered Media ***


  1. Did you have to sell 100% of your patent to IV? As an inventor with patents I'm trying to understand how IV helps inventors up front.

  2. On the question about IV deal terms, I believe that may vary with the situation -- scuttlebut seems to be that the majority of purchases they are involved with are simple up-front sales, but some may involve a back-end revenue share. But in any case, they provide a ready market for patents that can generate funds for the inventor -- without the complex and costly hurdles of licensing and/or litigation.

  3. Thanks for response. Other than their website, you are one of the few inventors I've read on the net talking about their experience with IV.
