Corporate demand for information on intellectual property rights is on the increase. In many businesses product development is both rapid and profitable – but this attracts more parties who want to stake their claim.
Information is key
The importance of IP protection is increasing. In addition to protecting your own assets, your competitors must be monitored more carefully and at an earlier stage. It is critical to stay on guard in order to prevent losing opportunities or risking infringing other’s rights. Insufficient information can have unfortunate consequences.
Our monitoring service
Your management may want a certain type of information, the R&D department another. To be able to make strategically correct decisions, you have to have a good general view of the market and your competitors, patent portfolios, technological development, etc. We provide you with a monitoring service for patents, trademark and design registrations.
Ask the material
How far have your closest competitors come? What patents, trademark and design registrations exist? In what countries are they valid and for how long? Or more specifically: What has happened in your particular technological area during the last six months? What license fees can you set based on what you know about a local market?
The purpose is to use the material available to draw valuable business conclusions such as: In what areas are we being threatened? Is anyone infringing our rights? Are we about to infringe anyone else’s rights?
Your own search profile
We determine your search profile together. We can monitor competitors, business areas, technology areas, specific intellectual property rights, trends and statistical information, and/or perform benchmarking studies. If you wish, we can do this on an ongoing basis with quarterly reports in a suitable format for you.
