#4 Patents: The First of the Three P's of Intellectual Property

The fourth installment of the Tntra podcast brings in a leading IP expert and patent practitioner, Charles Cella, who enlightens upon the need for patenting innovation.

In this IP podcast, host Mehul Desai interviews Charles Cella about the first of the three P’s of intellectual property: patents. The two discuss Charles’ background in patent strategy, exploring the ways in which Charles’ life experiences and career have given him a unique and thorough understanding of how patents can provide value to a company and the world at large.

Charles defines patents and patent portfolios, explaining the value of both a patent and the architecture of a larger patent portfolio. He describes the interplay between the companies that make up Strong Force Intellectual Properties and provides insight on how Strong Force approaches the patent process, specifically citing creativity, clarity, and control as core components of Strong Force’s strategy.

With this, Charles also unpacks the misconceptions around patents, highlighting the many ways in which patents are misunderstood, and therefore, underutilized. The podcast closes out with a discussion between Mehul and Charles about the geopolitical implications of a growing intellectual property market in the global south and the future of the role of patents in companies across the globe.
