e-IP, LLC (www.TechTransferOnline.com), Acquires Intellectual Property Listing Business from BirchBob International, S.A.
MICHIGAN, USA – September 30, 2008 – e-IP, LLC , which already
operates the largest intellectual property (IP) portal
in the world, became even bigger as it closed on the acquisition
of European-based BirchBob International, S.A. IP listing
business. Shortly, these listings will be added to www.TechTransferOnline.com’s
thousands of available patent families
The terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
“We are continuing our very rapid market
penetration, and are very pleased to add more high quality listings
to our portal,” states
Christophe Sevrain, the CEO of e-IP, LLC. “With
this latest move, we are solidifying our position as the clear market
At a time when some IP portals have only accumulated hundreds of IP over several years, TechTransferOnline.com has been able to increase its monthly rate of growth to about 2,000 available patent families every month, thanks to an increasing number of research organizations and corporations posting their technologies at THE Place To Go For Intellectual Property™.
Unlike some of its competitors, TechTransferOnline.com uses the most stringent definition of “a listing”. One piece of Intellectual Property with issued patents in five countries still counts as one listing on TechTransferOnline.com. Furthermore, IP that is not actively available for sale or licensing is not allowed on the website. So, when comparing “apples to apples”, TechTransferOnline.com is approximately ten times the size of its closest competitor.
With this acquisition, TechTransferOnline.com will see its activities skyrocket and will be much more attractive to its ever-growing base of both visitors looking for available intellectual property to license or acquire technologies as well as IP owners seeking to sell or license their IP portfolio.
“We expect rapid market consolidation,
and are looking forward to driving more such acquisitions or alliances
in the months to come,” adds
