Atlanta, GA, March 02, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The Native American Intellectual Property Enterprise Council (NAIPEC) (www.naipec.org) and their partner organization NDN IP PARTNERS, LLC (NDN) (www.ndnip.co) announced today its proactive program to identify and work with technology companies on Technology Transfer initiatives with Native American Tribes and Tribal businesses.
NDN IP Partners provides a "plug-in" type business model that allow Tribes to acquire Intellectual Property assets, that can be leveraged as global, bankable assets. NDN IP Partners offers tiered services, chiefly their patent procurement leasing platform.
Utilizing Tribal sovereignty, NDN IP Partners can assist Tribes in creating on-shore safe havens for companies and independent inventors wishing to preserve their patents from being attacked by actions brought by so-called "Patent Dragoons" or "Patent Ogres." The NDN IP Partners plan facilitates Tribes acquiring patents or patent portfolios and develops a leases-back program for the entity wishing to shield the patent from IPR and other actions, under the aegis of Tribal Sovereignty.
Announcing the program NAIPEC founder, and CEO of NDN IP PARTNERS, T. David Petite, “With the work we have undertaken through NAIPEC over the last 9 years, and now with NDN IP Partners, we have created a durable and flexible program that has enormous advantages for tech companies seeking partners for their IP portfolios, and for Native American enterprises looking to create real economic development opportunities. This enables new economic drivers to the reservations, helping to create jobs and educational resources, enhancing and preserving traditional communities in Indian Country.”
“NAIPEC’s initiative will provide patent holders the opportunity to gain some protection from costly litigation in the U.S.A. and provide Native American Tribes, who enjoy sovereign status, the ability to become a major player in the intellectual property management and monetization arena,” said Kim Ribbans, Executive Director of NAIPEC. “NAIPEC has increasingly become involved in strategic intellectual property work, and this initiative adds to our ability to help Tribes in a very important manner.”
