High tech products sometimes have thousands of patents in a single product. As frequent purveyors of single patents, how do we get the attention of high tech companies? And should we? Does it make sense (business, financial, relationship, etc.) for universities to patent in high tech if a start-up or other company is not already interested in licensing the technology?
