Bob Fletcher in Korea!!! - on June 29th, IPISC President
Bob Fletcher spoke at the 2018 Global IP Finance Conference,
hosted by the Korean IP Office. Bob's talk was:
"The Development and Status of the IP Insurance Market".
With our IP Defense Insurance policy, we protect your company from accusations of infringement. With litigation fees that can cost you upwards of a million dollars or more, of your hard-earned monies, why assume all of the financial risk and worries yourself - cut costs now!
With our IP Enforcement Insurance policy, we help you protect your company's valuable patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets -- that you worked and invested so much for -- reducing the costs to help you stop copycats from stealing your just rewards.
With our Collateral Protection Insurance (CPI) policy, we insure the value of your IP to use as collateral for a loan, helping you obtain millions in financing without having to give up precious equity. Your high quality patents deserve low-cost investment support.
With our Unauthorized Disclosure Insurance policy, we protect you from charges that you, your employees or subcontractors disclosed confidential information of others (trade secrets or proprietary information) entrusted to your company, whether the disclosure was accidental or not.

One question always comes to mind when working with insurance companies; will they be there for you when you need them-...." read more!
Jonathan Turner, President of Turnasure, LLC said, "A benefit, to having an enforcement policy through IPISC, is the Early Intervention Services, which sends letters on the policyholder's behalf stating they have insurance to enforce their IP rights. More recently we saw a company advertising our product without our permission, and we asked IPISC's team to send them an Early Intervention letter on our behalf...." read more!
