Investors seeking new investment choices are turning to IP. VC’s and others having made a business out of investing in start-up companies relying upon intellectual property to support new emerging technologies and business plans, report that IP is still hot as a lucrative investment choice. Technologies such as green energy or industries likely to be receiving bail-out funds are examples of IP areas viewed as possible hot investment options. In addition, given that many traditional investments are less desirable in the current economy, investors not previously having turned to patent assets, are opening their eyes to new possibilities, including funding patent litigation. Patent litigation investment opportunities may include funding an individual patent litigation for a return based upon recovered damages, or establishing a fund to support a handful of cases, and in that sense creating a more diversified portfolio to spread investment risk. Teamed with patent litigation counsel performing due diligence on patents and infringement cases, some investors are carefully selecting patent litigations in which to invest.
