Licensing

“One person’s trash is another person’s treasure.”

What do you do with patents or other intellectual property that are no longer useful to your company? License them.

Licensing can be very profitable, yet very few patents are actually licensed. Approximately 2 to 3 percent of issued patents become licensed for a royalty.

Fay Sharpe’s professionals will help you analyze underutilized intellectual property with an eye toward possible licensing opportunities before the IP protection lapses.
