What’s the secret to success that every aspiring entrepreneur has learned from watching the smash hit reality-TV show Shark Tank? “Unless you have a patent or some proprietary technology,” Shark Tank host Robert Herjavec has said time and time again to contestants, “you’re gonna be in trouble.” After which he invariably announces, “I’m out!” To be sure, patents, copyrights, trademarks and trade secrets — collectively, intellectual property (IP) — are not the only requirements for business success.
