4 Institut for Produktion og Ledelse Danmarks Tekniske Universitet John Heebøll Greenhouse+ The Protective Shield: 1. PATENT Global, efficiant, expensive, ressource consuming 2. UTILITY MODEL (Poor Man’s Patent) National - local, cheaper, less efficiant 3.DESIGN PROTECTION National, mandatory in certain business areas 4.TRADEMARKS, BRANDS National, mandatory when leaving your niche 5. SECRECY High cost/efficiancy, low protection, requires secrecy agreements with employees = extra payments 6.NICHE PROTECTION 7.SPEED PROTECTION

To obtain a patent requires NoveltyUnknown to Mankind UsefulnessIn a commercial-industrial context! InventivenessNot obvious to the skilled but unimaginative specialist

6 Institut for Produktion og Ledelse Danmarks Tekniske Universitet John Heebøll PATENT PROCESSING Rejection PATENT! Rejection PATENT! Filing 6 month 12 months PCT – International Patent 18 – 36 months National Patent FILING DATE = Priority Date – Globally!

7 Institut for Produktion og Ledelse Danmarks Tekniske Universitet John Heebøll Greenhouse+ Patents – interaction and impact Any one may file a patent on an invention, which improves an existing and patented invention No one is allowed to exploit the subsidiary patent without the permission of the owner of the existing patent
