VC Perspective on Intellectual Property

So today’s "great post" comes from er… me.  :)  Okay, so my partner Ryan and I did a podcast last week with Larry Nelson of W3W3 and our conversation covered both the intellectual property and patent issues we’ve faced as investors in high-technology companies. We definitely have a love/hate (ok, mostly hate) relationship with patents, so if you are interested in hearing (or reading) more, check it out here. Note the excellent intro and outro music, or the "bumper music" as Larry refers to it — it is from Soul Patch’s latest album and is therefore straight from Jason’s and my personal intellectual property collection
