Rich Goldstein, patent attorney, here with a question.
What’s more valuable…
The intellectual property of a company that sells a popular computer operating system and software?
Or fifty tons of solid gold?
At $2000 an ounce, fifty-tons of gold is worth $3.2 billion.
But what about the intellectual property?
How much could a dozen reams of paper that hold patents, trademarks and copyrights possibly be worth compared to fifty-tons of solid gold?
The Answer May Surprise You
If those patents, trademarks and copyrights are the intellectual property that secures ownership of Microsoft products…
Then according to Forbes Magazine, as of December 2015, the company, and the intellectual property (without which Microsoft would not exist), was valued at $349.89 billion… 109.34 times more valuable than fifty tons of solid gold.
In 1981 Microsoft paid fifty-thousand dollars for the rights to the software that soon became the most popular operating system for computers world-wide.
When Microsoft sold IBM the right to use their DOS software in IBM PCs, Microsoft retained the right to sell their version, MS DOS, to other computer manufactures.
Being savvy with intellectual property and retaining the right to sell to other manufactures helped make Microsoft one of the most valuable companies on earth.
- Had they not protected their intellectual property so well an army of lawyers couldn’t break their patents…
- Had they not managed their intellectual property rights to their great advantage and retained the right to sell to other manufacturers…
- Had they not relied on expert guidance and just tried to get the legal stuff done fast-and-cheap, Microsoft would have never grown the way it did.
And few would know the name Bill Gates.
The strength of your patent and how you manage your intellectual property rights makes all the difference in the world. For Microsoft, it’s worth billions.
How Valuable Are Your Ideas?
Your ideas may not morph into a multi-billion dollar company.
But one thing is certain.
If you have an idea for a product, a process, an app, a piece of software, a machine, a device, a chemical formula… or ANYTHING that solves a problem, improves efficiency, or makes life better in some measurable way…
It’s worth taking a serious look and seeing what it takes to protect your idea.
When Should You Protect Your Ideas?
In US Patent Law, first in time is first in line.
In other words, if you have a great idea and someone hears about it and files a patent before you do, you’re out. The patent is theirs not yours.
Even if the idea is 100% yours and they stole it, whoever files the patent first gets it. First in time, is first in line.
