2 The IP Experts No business remains the same Unless there is innovation there is certain business death Unless there is innovation, a business evaporates

3 The IP Experts Product Innovation Sales Time 1 st product 2 nd generation 3 rd generation

4 The IP Experts Innovations in Trademarks Modernizing Trademarks - e.g. Shell, 3M, Starbucks

5 The IP Experts Inventing Future Products/Process New Products (Non-existent before) E.g. Cell phones, Smart phones, iPad, etc. Reduce Cost Materials Operations Machines/Equipment Market Needs

6 The IP Experts Necessity is mother of invention - Traditional view (still relevant) Market survey on unmet needs R&D New Products

7 The IP Experts New Way Create Needs Then create market (e.g. Cell phone, etc) New Challenges Global Warming Increasing cost of labor Modern communication tools etc.

8 The IP Experts See Challengese.g. Japan – Small houses/apartments Miniaturization of domestic appliances Multi-functional tools High cost of fuel and reduction in supply Fuel efficient vehicles/equipment/machines Land High ValueMultiple use of land e.g. Oil palm plantations - Use of biomass - Use of below canopy space - Low sunlight plants - Animal husbandry
