The Intellectual Property Exchange International, the world’s first financial exchange focusing on intellectual property rights, plans to begin issuing the first unit license rights contracts in 2012. The Chicago-based exchange will allow intellectual property to be licensed more efficiently and with more transparency.  Unit license right™ (ULR) contracts allow patent owners to license select technology in a non-discriminatory manner via standard form licenses on publicly disclosed terms. Each ULR contract purchased will give the buyer the right to use an agreed-upon unit of intellectual property--for example, the right to make and/or sell up to an established quantity of products covered by the patents.  Gerard J. Pannekoek, president and CEO of the Exchange, will discuss the organization’s activities and answer questions from attendees.

IEBD Tuesday Networking Breakfast

“Research Clients Behaving Badly: Tales of Dilemmas and How They Were Resolved.” A C-suite executive asks you to use work time to conduct research supporting his hobby as a novelist. A research client makes claims that are the opposite of what your research actually found. Another client, a rising executive, takes credit for your research work and ideas. What would you do in these situations?  In the first part of this session, we’ll share some true stories of dilemmas faced by corporate information professionals and explain how they were successfully resolved. (Names, places and dates will be changed to protect the guilty.)  Next, audience members will be invited to participate by sharing their own true tales of clients or other stakeholders behaving badly and describing how each situation was handled. Join us to laugh, commiserate, learn from the experiences of your colleagues, and maybe share a story of your own.

Kathleen Fischer, Northwestern Mutual
