Challenges of value creation with your intellectual property
Patents, trademarks, and other intellectual property rights can quickly become a major cost item for a project leader or a company that does not use them. Unfortunately, this is often the case today since many patents pending go unused. We then talk about “dormant patents”. In France for instance, only about one third of the patents granted would be exploited! And this figure might be underestimated…
So, what are the solutions to avoid “unnecessary expenditure” in research and development? How to transform intellectual property into a valued asset that generates income for its owner?
This is a real strategic issue for companies.
Whether you are a start-up, a small- or medium-sized company, a university or a public or private laboratory, your research efforts inevitably lead you to innovate.
You may have created a new product and the question of patenting arises. Or you already are the owner of a trademark or a patent that you don’t use, and you don’t know if it’s worth protecting it any longer.
Maybe you are not sure how to optimize the use of your patent and wonder what is the best way to benefit from it?
