IP Strategy Blueprint

Problem:

IP strategy is a tactical plan in developing, managing and exploiting your IP assets. In other words, it defines the IP portfolios that you should obtain or acquire and how you are going to use those IP portfolios to your advantage.

Without a well-defined IP strategy, your competitors may be able to find loopholes in your IP portfolios to access your market. Hence, you may lose out to your competitors as you fail to safeguard your competitive advantage.

IP Navigation Tool

Problem:

IP rights are territorial rights and thus, IP rights are only enforceable in countries that you have filed. There is a time limit to extend the IP rights in other countries, particularly for patent, industrial design and trademark.

With the clock ticking, you must decide where to extend your IP rights in other countries. The dilemma is usually due to the uncertainty of potential market locations, especially if your products or businesses are still at a rudimentary stage.

Patent Assessment Tool

Problem:

If you have an abundant of granted patents and patent applications, some of them may no longer be of high worth to you. This could be due to technological obsolescence. To maintain those low worth patents and patent applications, it would incur substantial costs. Thus, disposal of such patents and patent applications would make sense as it would save funds. But, the big question is: which patents or patent applications should be disposed of.

Unless you have a crystal ball, you could not ascertain which one of your patents or patent applications should be disposed of. A patent or patent application may not be worth now due to its infancy phase but it may be a game-changer in the future.

IP Mining

Problem:

Each IP right protects different aspects of a product. To qualify for any of the IP rights, it must satisfy certain requirements. One product may not be sufficiently covered by only one IP right. However, not all IP rights apply to every single product.

When you have developed a new product, you need to identify the best possible protection in terms of IP rights. The IP rights need to cover the core differentiator of your product. If the core differentiator is not covered, then such protection would be too narrow that your competitors may easily circumvent it.

We can help you to identify all IP rights applicable to your product so that it will cover the core differentiator of the product as well as other parts of the product. We will also take into account your product lifecycle as well as the nature of your product. Ultimately, you may then decide on which IP rights to proceed.
