GTT Group, Inc. Releases October 2014 Patent Transaction Market Outlook Including the Q2 2014 Patent Market Index

Global Technology Transfer Group, Inc. (GTT Group), the world leader in patent transaction advisory services, announces the Q2 2014 Patent Market Index and October 2014 Patent Transaction Market Report. The Patent Market Index (PMI™) tracks patent transaction activity and patent marketplace trends, and is reported quarterly in the Patent Transaction Market Report (PTMR).

The Q2 2014 PMI™ continued the Q1 2014 rising trend and brought the index to 128.6 for the first time. GTT Group attributes the Q2 2014 PMI index gain of 8.5% to recording lags and deal momentum continuing through the first half of 2014.

“This rise is a continuation of the rebound from the lull in activity charted by the index during the last quarters of 2013”, states Michael Lubitz, CEO and Chairman of GTT Group.

Intellectual Ventures succeeded Samsung at the top of the Most Active Deal Makers list. RPX Corporation, Tessera, Google Inc., Huawei, and Microsoft completed the list. More detail on these lists is available in the Q2 2014 PMI and through direct discussion with GTT Group.
