IP Standards, Price-Fixing, and the LCD Cartel

We’re talking standards this week — from the LCD Cartel “standardizing” the prices of their TFTs (otherwise called “price-fixing”) to the standards we all need to employ to make sure our IP works the way we intend. I interview Ian Mackintosh (President – OCP-IP) about why IP standards are important, how OCP-IP can help us all get on the same IP page, and how Ian is trying to help us all become managers in our spare time.

I also have one more Altera DE0-Nano Development Kit (courtesy of Altera) to give away to one lucky listener. I’ll tell you at the end of my broadcast how you can enter to win!
