Cipher Launch

Thursday 18 September was hailed as a historic occasion as people living in Scotland voted on independence from the UK.  But for around the hundred people attending the CIPHER launch, another significant event was unfolding.

The commercial launch of CIPHER is historic in this sense – for the first time data relating to patents and events, such as licencing and litigation, has been aggregated, analysed and visualised in a form accessible to the wider business community.  This enables organisations to make informed strategic decisions surrounding IP – something that, up until now, they have been struggling to do.

The event also marked the publication of our report ‘The Trillion Dollar Tipping Point – Exploiting the untapped value in patents.’   Edited by IPKat blogmeister, academic and friend Jeremy Phillips and with a foreword by former Lord Justice The Rt. Hon. Professor Sir Robin Jacob, it includes contributions from ARM, EY, Deutsche Bank, UK IPO and Allied Security Trust.

The key finding of the report was that IP strategy is now a boardroom issue – and that access to reliable and easily understood data is critical to encouraging companies and the financial services sector to appreciate IP as an asset class that can be managed in terms of risk and value, and therefore monetised.

CIPHER was warmly welcomed by the guests, who included major corporates, accountants, banks and law firms, and it was acknowledged that CIPHER has the potential to change the way intellectual property is understood, in turn enabling the more effective exploitation of its enormous value.

However, all of us at AISTEMOS are aware that September 18 was not the destination, but the beginning of the journey.

The commercial launch of Cipher has attracted around the hundred representatives of a business community awaiting the world’s first analytics platform where for the first time data relating to patents and events, such as licencing and litigation, has been aggregated, analysed and visualised in a form accessible not only to the IP professionals.

The event also marked the publication of our report ‘The Trillion Dollar Tipping Point – Exploiting the untapped value in patents.’   Edited by IPKat blogmeister, academic and friend Jeremy Phillips and with a foreword by former Lord Justice The Rt. Hon. Professor Sir Robin Jacob, it includes contributions from ARM, EY, Deutsche Bank, UK IPO and Allied Security Trust.
