Fremtiden for
immaterielle rettigheter

Verden endrer seg hele tiden, og derfor finnes det et økende behov for å beskytte alt fra ideer og integritet til data og oppfinnelser. For å holde tritt med behovene til våre kunder, sorterer vi immaterielle verdier i tre nye, men kjente begrep. Sammen dekker disse begrepene alt vi gjør og definerer vår nye måte å se på immaterielle rettigheter på. De dekker helt enkelt alle aspekter.

Innovation Assets

Everything connected with an innovation or an innovation process can become an innovation asset. Patents, Copyrights, licenses, trade secrets, knowhow and processes are all examples of innovation assets that can add value to your business. We look into all aspects that relate to innovation assets and how to manage these.

Digital Assets

How do you turn data or software into a digital asset? How do you make sure that you are the owner of your data, and how do you keep it safe? At Zacco, we can help you. We advise clients about how to protect and verify data, process it into information and operationalize it, thus turning it into digital assets.

Identity Assets

Whatever helps your customer recognize that this is your company, product or service is potentially an identity asset. Everything from trademarks, designs, domain names, text & images to licenses, websites and social media can be turned into identity assets that not only will secure your business, but also increase its value.
DU HAR VERDIER DU IKKE VET OM

Du har sannsynligvis
verdier du ikke vet om

Som regel har du nok god kontroll over dine immaterielle verdier. Men det kan være at du har skjulte verdier som du ikke vet om, verdier som kan øke selskapets verdi når de har blitt identifisert og beskyttet. Våre verktøy og prosesser kan hjelpe deg med å finne disse verdier på en enkel måte. Historiene nedenfor viser hvordan immaterielle verdier kan dukke opp på uventede steder. Og hvordan verdier du kjenner til, kan skape nye verdier – når de behandles på riktig måte. Kanskje disse historiene kan inspirere deg til å se på verdiene dine på en helt ny måte. En måte som kan øke verdien på dit foretak.

A large company within the beauty industry approached Zacco in their search for a partner that could help them manage and protect their intellectual property assets. After years of successfully growing their business, they experienced an ever-increasing challenge with competitors capitalising from their designs, brands and unique functionalities. Together with the client, we developed a comprehensive IP Strategy for the company. Rather than spending extensive amounts of time and money on enforcing their rights, for instance by shutting down competitors’ products through litigation, we advised the client to license their patents to competitors. This way our client was able to increase their revenue and profits from their intangible assets. We also helped our client formalise license and reseller agreements, which generated revenue exceeding the cost of defending the company’s IP.

Hvordan data kan øke inntekten

A global player in the manufacturing industry sought assistance from Zacco in the early phases of its digitalisation project. Their classic yet analogue products had to transform into the digital era, along with the company as a whole. For this task, we provided a cross-expertise team of software developers and patent attorneys, assisting and educating the company and its employees during the fast-moving development phase. In this process, we identified that the products generated valuable data – as in numbers, statistics and other valuable information – which our client could profit from by performing big data analysis and afterwards sell the results to established content providers. By helping to create and patent the company’s software, and to identify knowhow, we made intangible assets, of which the client was unaware, visible, and increased the value of the company.

Mindre IP ga mer verdi

When new owners took control of a successful clothing design and manufacturing company, they asked for Zacco’s help to consolidate their IP portfolio, which had become hard to manage. In line with our established work process, we began with identifying, collecting and evaluating all of the company’s trademarks and domain names from a strategic market perspective. As we identified brands and domain names that were no longer in use or of low value, we managed to reduce the size of the portfolio and thereby save our client money. Further, we realised that our client owned the right to a vital component on a sports article. By finding this “hidden” value, we ensured that our client received reasonable compensation from competitors who had infringed on their rights, and increased their recurring revenue by creating license agreements.

Due Diligence: Mer verdi for pengene

A company engaged Zacco in relation to a merger and acquisition (M&A) to carry out assessments of the intellectual property and information security of a potential investment (the “target company”). We initiated the due diligence by mapping the target company’s patents and patent applications, brands and registered trademarks. We also reviewed license and R&D agreements, and assessed security risks. During the mapping, we found that the actual value of the patent portfolio was low relative to the original ‘strength assessment’ that had been carried out by a third party. Key patents within the portfolio were not as strong as presented, and the geographical scope of protection could also be questioned. Thus, by identifying and evaluating the target company’s intellectual property, we helped our client (the acquiring company) to negotiate a better price.

Skjulte verdier i data

A software company that produces mobile applications (“apps”) for the travel industry needed Zacco’s advice on how to utilise the data generated from their apps. First, our team of experienced software developers and cybersecurity consultants analysed the client’s product and level of security. We continued by reviewing their identity assets, such as trademarks and domain names. Next, we created a digital assets strategy and set up a process for how to develop their applications. Finally, we created a strategy for how to extend the protection of their online brands and unique software. As we discovered that the company had not legally ensured that they owned the data, which their apps produced, we helped them create new terms of business and terms of use. We also helped our client to meet the data storage and privacy requirements after implementation of GDPR.

Outsourcing av IP-portefølje

A large international company approached Zacco and asked for our help to consolidate their extensive and highly complex patent portfolio. The company was looking to reduce administration and to reduce the cost of maintaining their portfolio while reducing the time of pendency. To start with, we identified all assets in their patent portfolio and classified them by level of importance. We then began managing all recordals and validations. Simultaneously, we took over responsibility for their pending patent applications, offering various fixed price agreements leading to reduced application costs. As this turned out to be very cost-effective for our client, they decided to outsource their trademark portfolio to Zacco as well. Thus, we not only helped them to reduce cost and administrative workload, but also to gain better overview of their portfolio.
