Have We Hit the Bottom in the Patent Market?
The short answer: No. Longer answer follows.
The patent market—and I disagree with those who argue that there’s no such thing and that patents are not an asset class—had an amazing bull run from the late 1980’s through 2012. The peak was 2011 to 2012 when we saw a number of multi-billion dollar patent sales and patent-driven acquisitions.
The bull run is over – for my thoughts on the causes for the end of the good times and on how we will tell when we’ve hit bottom, please see the post on IPWatchdog.
