IP Management conjures up a singular view of attorneys and large companies. Wrong! This presentation will take a look at "Everyday" IP Management from the perspective of the Product Management, and discover its relevance to any balanced, sustained product delivery effort in high-tech. It will include the broader realm of intellectual capital and it's use to produce a "sustained value meet". Among other things, we'll hit:

    * Balancing the motives and drivers of Product Management
    * Guarding the seeds of infringement
    * Tying together IP and the promise of the brand
    * Working with the attorneys: it can - and should - be done
    * How mis- or unmanaged market orientation will get the company in trouble
    * The downside of being too protective of secrets
    * Why using Open Source tools and component software is 'no problem' for operations and company IP
