Mr. Moberly began writing his 'Business IP and Intangible Asset Blog' in mid-summer, 2008.  Since that time, his 'blog' has found readers in 65 countries and 41 states.  Mike personally writes each blog and conducts his own research.  He says, excluding a daily research regimen on a range of issues related to intangible assets and intellectual property, actually writing and posting a blog generally requires about two hours. 

Mike tries to write 2-3 blog posts per week depending on his schedule.  Typically, his workday begins at 4:00 a.m. in which he 'frames out' that day's blog post.  Then off to his favorite Starbucks, arriving by 5:30 a.m. when they open, where he writes and posts his blogs which he tries to complete by 7:30 or 8:00 a.m.

Condensing the message to less than a page, selecting issues/topics that have current relevance and explaining why they're relevant, and sometimes being provocative, yet always respectful in your writing style, are some of the keys to building readership.

'Business IP and Intangible Asset Blog' readers will rountinely find Mike's blog posts landing on page one of Google, something he attributes to the original content of each post.

Mr. Moberly Interviewed By Detroit Free Press About Theft of Intellectual Property at Ford and GM

Detroit Free Press reporter interviewed Mr. Moberly (October 21st) about recent incidents of intellectual property theft at both Ford and GM.  Mike pointed out that theft/misappropriation of IP, trade secrets, and proprietary intangible assets represent persistent concerns and vulnerabilities to companies globally.  In a significant percentage of IP-trade secret theft incidents, insiders (employees, etc.) are key players. 

As for theft/misappropriation being on the rise, Mr. Moberly points out that today, 65+% of most company's value, sources of revenue, sustainability, and growth are directly related to intangible assets and other forms of intellectual property, therefore, theft of a company's 'tangible-physical assets' has been replaced by theft-misappropriation of 'intangible assets', i.e., trade secrets, proprietary information, IP, etc. 

For companies, the challenge today is being able to effectively manage those assets in such a manner to sustain (indeterminate) control, use, and ownership which includes monitoring changes in materiality and/or value.  The challenges and complexities related to executing and achieving this requires the convergence - collaboration of most all functional and business units within a company.

Mr. Moberly served as Program Chair for a two-day seminar in Denver sponsored by the American Society for Industrial Security International and the Information Asset Protection Council, which Mike currently serves as its vice-chair. 

The guiding theme of the program was to focus on the realities of the ever changing global business transaction environment that has experienced a significant economic shift in the past decade, i.e., 65+% of most company's value, sources of revenue, sustainability, and growth are directly linked to intangible assets and intellectual property. 

Mike brought together many extraordinarily experienced speakers that addressed numerous relevant topics such as NDA's, market-entry planning and due diligence, protecting R&D environments, working with corporate legal teams, dealing with insider threats, product counterfeiting and piracy, shielding against competitor intelligence and data mining, litigating trade secret cases, and new technologies for managing proprietary-sensitive information.
