About this title


In the 1990s when Pat Kennedy and his team at Cellport Systems patented a way to connect mobile phones to automobiles for universal hands-free applications and built the world’s first Internet car, they knew they were pioneering revolutionary innovations. Expecting business opportunities to pour in, they instead entered a decade-long battle against a who’s who of global companies that repeatedly stole their product designs and tried to put them out of business. IdeaJacked is Pat Kennedy’s illuminating and entertaining tale of how Cellport out-maneuvered its brazen competitors, managed to survive, and built a patent portfolio that today forms the core of a $5 billion market. Cellport even made peace with its former competitors. Kennedy uses his story to expose the IdeaJacking epidemic, discuss its immense implications on businesses and national economies, and to raise awareness of the need for a new focus on ethical trade—not just free trade agreements—between countries.

Pat Kennedy has spent 25 years as an executive, entrepreneur and inventor in the wireless industry. He is the founder, chairman and CEO of Cellport Systems, a research lab pioneering revolutionary technologies that enable formerly disparate devices and systems to communicate with one another.

Kennedy contributed to 11 of Cellport’s patents. He has a BA in international economics from the University of Buffalo. He chairs the advisory board for the UB Center of Excellence on Human Capital, Technology Transfer, and Economic Growth and Development and serves on the Dean's Advisory Committee.
