The Sharing Economy for Intellectual Property Assets
Smart Pools enable companies to share the right to license their patents while also retaining IP ownership. This also makes it easy for other companies, Members, to access licenses in one technology area from a single source, the Smart Pool, by paying an annual fee. The revenue generated from these licenses is then shared among Founders.
