Business Intellectual Property


How to Obtain a Manual

I have written a manual for business personnel to guide them in both when and how to consider intellectual property issues in business decisions. Also view a decision tree from the manual that outlines some considerations.

"How to Maximize Profits: Strategic Considerations of IP Issues in Business Decisions"

  • Each manual - $75.00 (plus $2.00 for shipping and handling)

  • Volume discounts available on request.

Getting the manual is only useful to the extent you use it in your business decisions. A major part of using the manual involves training of both management and other employees. Please consider contacting a patent attorney that you have a good relationship with to develop and execute such training.

Shipping will be by first class mail through the U.S. Postal Service. Send your request to the address below with check or money order to William R. Berggren, LLC. Minnesota residents, please add 6.5% of the total including shipping and handling as sales tax.

Business IP Publications

Several intellectual property (IP) publications for entrepreneurs and managers of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are available from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). The guides are a part of a new series on "Intellectual Property for Business" that is intended to cover a wide range of practical IP issues that are important to business leaders.
