4/25/ Why do Patent Analysis ? Patents & IPRs are mainly associated with protection The most important issue of technological innovation is nevertheless: freedom to operate – check & analysis of existing prior IPR – to avoid infringements on exclusive rights of third parties – optimal implementation of the planned business strategy (partners, buy-build,…)
4/25/ Why check? To know what happens in your domain/to know your competitors and what they do To avoid that one has to stop immediately exploitation activities for reasons of infringement of earlier existing IPRs To avoid compensation claims for such infringements To avoid to re-invent the wheel European industry spends yearly € on re-inventing existing inventions, inventing products that cannot be commercialised anymore or on searching solutions for problems that are already solved. The obligation to check, the option to patent
4/25/ Patents through the innovation process START IDEA PROTOTYPE PRODUCT MARKET INTRODUCTION Development and collection of ideas SOURCE OF INFORMATION SOURCE OF INFORMATION : are there valid patents or can I copy the invention freely? Development and working out of a concept SOURCE OF INSPIRATION SOURCE OF INSPIRATION : state-of-the-art searches; can I build further on the existing patents? Specifying the prototype PATENT PROTECTION PATENT PROTECTION as possibility to protect the invention. Preparation of production and market introduction EXPLOITATION EXPLOITATION of the patent: detection of infringements, licensing out
