6 QUESTIONS OF IP AND BUSINESS IN START UP AND SMALL COMPANIES
We have some ideas and patents, but how can we make business of them? Can we afford more inventions, patents and other IP, R&D-activities, because of their costs? And how do we finance them? What kind of financiers exist in our country? What is IP management? What is included and is it something for us? Who should take care of patent matters in our company or outside? How do we get more information or money? © Kari Sipilä

7 QUESTIONS OF IP AND BUSINESS IN SME COMPANIES 1(2)
Why to apply for a patent and how? How do we get the most business and profit of it? What is Intellectual Property, its management and related tasks? How should we organize, finance and manage our R&D and invention activities? Who should take care of Intellectual Property – we or patent attorney or other consultant (who, where to find, costs, reliability, etc.)? © Kari Sipilä

8 QUESTIONS OF IP AND BUSINESS IN SME COMPANIES 2(2)
Who should follow competitors and their IP – and how? Should we sell or buy IP or license in or out, how to find partners or other interested parties? Whom and how and where should we train our staff for IP? How is IP linked to strategies and what kind of business planning, visions, etc. should we have? How should we make IP and innovation decisions? © Kari Sipilä

9 REPLIES TO QUESTIONS: ADVISORY AND FINANCING SERVICES ARE ESSENTIAL
Inventors, universities and innovative companies need innovation advisory services Usually innovation services include Advisory and financing services for the invention development work in innovation centers, which may be separate or part of universities or regional government offices Financing of research and development, patenting and commercialization costs or part of the costs © Kari Sipilä

15 PRACTICAL FACTORS AFFECTING TO THE BIRTH OF INNOVATIONS
Creativity and innovations need room, time and cooperation Innovative work should be enjoyable and awarding Encourage and allow different types of innovativeness Let all flowers grow and give them water, do not rinse too early Knowledge and success attract others – the magnet phenomen It is worthwile to respect different experiences, ages, cultures, backgrounds etc. Knowledge and skills grow, when different views and experiences influence Innovative persons cannot always innovate © Kari Sipilä

16 FROM WHERE DO THE INNOVATIONS COME?
Ideas, inventions and potential innovations may be based on market possibilities or needs lack of products, methods, solutions new technical or business solutions research and development work basic and applied science and research intuition, good luck, by accident, by serendipity applications to some other field where invented combinations of above © Kari Sipilä

17 CHARACTERISTICS OF A GOOD INVENTION
The product is market driven; it is in demand and there is market pull The product is inventive, novel and patentable The product is significant to the business and to employment The product is functional, capable of being produced and economical The product can be launched quickly There is organizational commitment behind the development project and the product Investors are interested in the venture © Kari Sipilä

18 FROM IDEAS INTO PRODUCTS ON THE MARKET
EVALUATION, PLANNING PATENTING PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT COMMERZIALI-SATION General counselling on inventions and innovations Invention-specific counselling Innovation projects Market pull Novelty and inventiveness Technical features Business opportunities Ownership IPR strategy and policy Domestic and international patent application Legal aid Technical Productive Commercial Prototype workshop Marketing communications Market reserch The Invention Market Licensing The production of the inventor entrepreneur © Kari Sipilä

EVALUATION CRITERIA Proximity to the market who is the customer and is he willing to pay for a product developed from the invention Inventiveness, novelty, patentability in addition to the evaluator’s own knowledge, an Internet search is usually conducted for comparative reasons for instance ( or ) novelty research by traditional means carried out by the Patent Office The technical solution, technological level, potential for industrial manufacture often initially an expert assessment with calculations and comparisons, and then, at a later development stage, clarifications, calculations and comparisons related to a prototype and its testing Business potential, commercialization and management what is the business potential of the new product and its estimated competitiveness will future commercialization be based on the production in an existing or starting company, or on licensing, or on trade the business strategy and particularly the company and its management are evaluated several times during the invention development process © Kari Sipilä

M/S Freedom of the Seas M/S Freedom of the Seas, the first of two Ultra Voyager class vessels, is now under construction at the Aker Finnyards Turku Shipyard for Royal Caribbean International. When it enters service in April 2006, this 158,000 GRT vessel will be the world’s largest cruise vessel. The 339-metre-long vessel will carry 3,600 passengers on 15 passenger decks. The Freedom of the Seas will be fitted with about 13,000 sprinklers in the accommodation, public and service areas, as well as 400 spray heads in the machinery spaces. The machinery space arrangement follows the principles of all RCCL vessels since the Grandeur of the Seas. All machinery spaces are protected by an enhanced high pressure water mist system, providing a much higher level of protection than would be required by a regulatory local application system.

MARIOFF WON INTERNET COURT CASE Marioff has just won an important internet court case through the "fast-track" arbitration procedure of WIPO, the World Intellectual Property Organization. A competitor had been diverting customers to their own website from the domain name (instead of arguing that "HI-FOG" or "HIFOG" is a commonly used term for any high pressure water mist systems. The arbitrator, chosen by WIPO, rejected this argument, deciding that the competitor had registered and used the name in 'bad faith', and ordered Network Solutions, the "com" registration company, to hand over the domain name to Marioff. So now you will get the same high quality information on the internet from the "first choice" water mist company - whether you key in "hi-fog" or "hifog"!
