How do I protect my knowhow?

Media Evolution City, Stora varvsgatan 6, , 211 19 Malmö

Commissions’ proposal for directive on the protection of trade secrets. Knowhow is one of the most valuable intellectual assests to most businesses, and many businesses use confidentiality strategically as an alternative to apply for a patent.

But how do you protect knowhow and how is knowhow protected by the law? The protection of knowhow varies significantly from country to country and businesses operating in more countries as for example in the Øresunds Region, must decide on how to deal with these differences. The European Commission has therefore presented a prosal for directive, which aims at harmonising the protection of trade secrets in the European Union.

At this seminar attorneys at law Martin Sick Nielsen and Maria Beijer and European Patent Attorney Henrik Aurell describe the protection of knowhow in Denmark and Sweden, the European Commission proposal for directive, analyses the practical implications of the implementation of the directive and directs som practical solutions to the protection of knowhow.
