My Pepper Hamilton partner Ray Miller was recently interviewed by WMNY Money Talk 1360 AM of Pittsburgh, PA about the link between intellectual property protection and corporate management strategies. The interview originally aired on Friday, August 5, 2011.
The interview stems from a survey that Ray and our colleague David Smith conducted on behalf of Pepper at the 2011 Bio International Convention. Pepper surveyed CEOs, business development executives and scientists attending BIO’s Biotechnology Entrepreneurship Boot Camp, as well as those attending a dinner event that Pepper hosted. According to survey respondents, technology is just the beginning. Those surveyed felt a life sciences company would have trouble succeeding without both a strong management team and strong intellectual property protection.
I thought that IP Spotlight readers would have an interest in listening to the interview. To listen, link to the Pepper Hamilton website via this link.
