Has anyone gone through the process of financing using collateralized IP?
We have a patent body consisting of 13 in the US (11 approved) and a series of internationals. I've gotten part way through the process before and we are considering revisiting it.
a.) connect with people who have/are considering IP financing.
b.) Learn more about common pitfalls
c.) Understand the long term implications
d.) Understand common/fair terms
e.) Recommendations on credit enhancement firms
For those unfamiliar, its an interesting trend, good introductory article here; http://www.grr.com/download/publications/final_articles/jk-ms-genIP.pdf
Thanks in advance,
