This portal, operated by Minnesota-based Global Commerce &
Communication, Inc. (GCCI), acts as a free online forum for trading intellectual
property, including industrial property and copyrighted property. By
providing a free central registry for small businesses, individuals,
universities, government agencies, research institutions, and investors

charge per deal, the site is advertiser supported. Users must register to
participate but there are no membership fees for buyers or sellers of
intellectual property. World Wide Web:
