At the Intersection of E-commerce and IP Intelligence: Geolocation Strategies for Today’s Online Retailer

There’s little doubt that technology innovation has changed—and continues to transform—the shopper-seller relationship. During the ‘90s, the majority of consumers still shopped in person at retail stores, even as the Internet opened up an entirely new channel to sell goods and services.
