7837 Intellectual property
It's occurred to me that I might not ever acquire much in the way of physical assets throughout my life. It's not in my interest to buy-to-let or anything like that -- but I am very interested in owning intellectual property, and belong to the right industry to consider it (biotech).

Do any of you lads own any kind of IP? I mean this in the broadest sense, could be authorship of a book, a piece of music, patents, a bit of programming, etc..

What was the process like for acquiring it? Can you advise anyone aiming to create a similar bit of IP?

The IP for most of those belongs to you by virtue of you being the one who made it up. In this country at least. You needn't "acquire" it.

Hold on, are you talking about just buying someone else's IP and then... sitting on it as an investment? Why?

That's part of the backstory to one of Gibson's trilogies.

I own the rights to a bunch of music. I get about 70 quid dumped into my paypal wallet annually from it because Spotify et al are massive scamming bastards, and I've given up on selling physical merchandise because it's a pain in the arse going to the post office all the time.

That's only from one album and a couple of singles mind you. When I get back in the game and start putting out more content in a more modern, tech savvy cynical approach I hope to make a nice little nest-egg to kick into my savings account. Nothing worth giving up the day job over, but it's basically free money really isn't it.

If it's any consolation I have "Joe's Wasted Life" saved to my hard drive and you don't get any commission from it on the once-a-year occasion that I remember it exists and listen to it again.

Oh come on, you've got to tell us. If you were a band rather than a solo effort we won't even be able to identify you personally. Besides, we all know cheflad is actually Heston Blumenthal but we don't bother him about it.

Amazon sends me about 70p a year for a short story collection I put on there.

I own some recipes/menus and 'business methodologies' related to kitchen stuff, but this is more that I own them and the company has already paid for the rights to use them, rather than me getting money every time someone eats a black pudding tower or whatever. I also retain the rights to some specials I designed as a young cheflad for the company I worked for, which is nice I suppose but utterly useless as the company still retains all rights to use and modify the dishes, but it was exciting at the time. This stuff I suspect is mostly symbolic, it's pretty fucking hard to copyright a recipe as just about anything worth making has its roots in a published or age-old dish as it is.

I also have a few producer credits for bands you've never heard of and one for a band you might have heard of, and get occasional PRS cheques for a few pence each.

I have no valuable information for you, just wanted to contribute.

This might be the most believable claim anyone has ever made here. I don't even want proof, it just makes sense.

Agreed. I've spent the last ten minutes reading about them and it all fits perfectly. Exactly how I'd imagine a bunch of .gs posters in the flesh.

I'd also bet my right bollock you're the same guy who sometimes brings up how trivially easy it is to get sucked off by a teenager in the bogs if you can hold a guitar the right way up...

Anyway good on you m8, sounds like you've had a right adventure.
