Independent patent analysis makes economic sense.
Whether you are an executive, a director, or an advisor of a technology company, decisions about developing or investing in patents should be based upon broad, objective information. Economics, not emotion, should drive patent investment options just like any other capital investment in a business tool. There are many billions of dollars wasted annually on patents that will not recover the costs of acquiring them. There are some risks that simply cannot be eliminated, but that does not mean that they should not be identified and considered.
