One of those tools, called MarkrTM, which helps patent owners launch and manage a VPM program, which can in some cases provide significant (and largely unknown) upsides to valuable patent portfolios.   Jim has written on a range of topics relevant to his interest in IP and Terrifio.  Jim is an active member of the Intellectual Property Institute of Canada, serving on a number of its committees.
