LONDON, November 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
With the value placed on patent portfolios stronger than ever, companies in the High Tech industries are facing increasing demands to get every ounce of value out of IP and patent portfolios to safeguard their intellectual property across markets, including the challenging but crucial emerging markets.
In preparation for Global High-Tech IP Conference, Legal IQ spoke to two intellectual property experts to discover their secrets - project not protect your innovation and build bridges not fences!
Tom Briscoe, Senior IP Strategist at Dako Europe, discusses the best IP strategy in the emerging markets: "As these countries getting more developed, their own inventors are going to be interested in having a patent system that allows them to grow. The top three tips are namely to build connections, develop a good knowledge of cultural and legal obligations, and finally tailor your innovation to your audience."
Adrian Spillman, Global Head of IP at Intercell, discusses how to decide when to patent: "Cost benefit analysis of patent portfolio is essential in deciding what and what to patent. Not just in a bookkeeping way, but really in a broader and more transparent manner by analysing the selection process. Good patent portfolio management can really communicate the value of a patent portfolio to management and being in communication with them to make a good selection."
