To ARM’s Chief IP Counsel Sam Funnell (Ben pronouced it Funnel but I thought the emphasis is on the second syllable).
Sitting next to Sherry Knowles (ex GSK head of IP) and hearing Sherry say that she “totally disagrees” with you is not easy territory. But Sam is a true Brit. Her comment that
“ in Arm, I am responsible for IP, but that my board and management are responsible for Arm’s intellectual, human and relationship capital”
gets the Tangible IP award for the most sophisticated comment at IPBC, and maybe of 2012.
No wonder Arm has now shipped more microprocessors than Intel. A perfect IP model. Would love to run our benchmark on them.
