Biometrics has slowly become more and more present in our everyday lives. We no longer bat an eyelid when our phones require us to use a finger print for a payment or even when its how you get into your gym. So whats the next step?
Cubic, who are the people behind the payment technology of the London Transport System, have devised a system that can double the “throughput” of an entrance—from 25 people crossing a gate’s threshold per minute, to about 50 or 60. This idea could mean that we would no longer have gates at tube stations across London and instead your phone in combination with your face.
Niosha Kayhani of Cubic will be taking us through the development of this Technology and also the growing uses and industry that is Biometrics.
A well-managed patent portfolio will protect your most valuable assets, while delivering a strong return on investment. But actively managing your intellectual property assets is time-consuming and complex – particularly if your portfolio spans across multiple territories and INPADOC families.
IP managers often have to make difficult renewal or abandonment decisions without the benefit of detailed technical knowledge, working via spreadsheets or collaborating via emails to understand the importance of a particular patent. The risk of making a wrong choice when it comes to selling, licensing or abandoning patents can sometimes push them to the safe option of ‘do nothing’.
For businesses, doing nothing means wasting budget on unnecessary or inflated renewal fees or missed opportunities to generate new revenue. How can we resolve some of these inefficiencies?
In this webinar, Duncan Clark will be discussing how patent portfolio managers can make better decisions on whether to sell, license, or scrap patents. Attendees will learn about common approaches to portfolio management and how to reduce costs and improve portfolio ROI through the strategic use of tools and innovation data.
This webinar demonstrates how broad patent claims can be structured to include the impact and experience associated with using the invention along with the invention configuration. This approach can be particularly useful when filing in crowded patent spaces, enabling broader protection at lower cost than a "picket fence" IP strategy.
Jason Lye (IAM 300 Strategist) and Founder of Lyco Works will be exploring these ideas in an upcoming webinar. Several Lyco Works customers have also found this approach useful to increase the value of their patent claims vs. their larger and more litigious competitors.
David Pridham, Chief Executive Officer and Brad Sheafe, Chief Intellectual Property Officer of Dominion Harbor will be taking us through their recent acquisition of the Kodak Patent Portfolio and the steps they are taking to monetise over 4000 patents.
Unfortunately patent monetisation isn't as simple as selling or licensing, it depends heavily on the other players in the market, where the market is moving and also the litigation and future legislation when it comes to that particular technology.
This webinar will cover:
- The analytical approach (using technology to help assess the opportunity)
- The go-to-market strategy development
- How to present this strategy to potential buyers without being exposed to litigation risks
- Building global partnerships to maximise the monetisation potential of the portfolio in a heterogeneous, world-wide marketplace
- Managing prosecution, maintenance, divestiture and abandonment
Open Source Software is now broadly used in the development of software applications. The ability to reuse components of code already created allows development teams to create more code, with more functionality, faster. It also promotes the adoption of standards and makes applications more interoperable.
With the increasing adoption of open source software in software development there is an increasing need for organisations to understand free and open source software licensing obligations and compliance issues.
PatSnap will be joined by Martin Callinan, Founder of Source Code Control. Martin has over 20 years’ experience providing organisations with strategies to manage business risks associated with open source software such as IP compliance, security vulnerability management and procurement. He is actively involved in the open source software industry to help create best practices and industry standards for the adoption and management of open source based software through organisations such as TechUK and OpenUK.
One of the most frustrating things for any innovation leader is their team coming up with innovative and exciting ideas only to realise they cannot be patented.
Wouldn’t it be better if you could understand what you can and cannot patent much earlier? It would reduce the time wasted on ideation and increase the focus at the early stages of development, because you would have a better understanding of what can be achieved.
In this webinar, PatSnap will be joined by Dr. D’vorah Graeser, Founder of KISSPatent and US patent agent with over 21 years of experience helping entrepreneurs around the world bring their ideas to life.
Some key topics we will be covering include:
- Identifying the differences between freedom to operate and patentability searches
- What is prior art, and how to get the most from this functionality
- Real use cases of successful patentability
Intellectual property can account for 70% of a company’s value, but how can you be sure that you’re protecting the right patents. Being able to sift through your IP and pick out the gems amongst it can be a challenge, however, with the right strategic mindset, it can be done.
PatSnap is very excited to welcome back Dr Dierk Oliver Kiehne CEO of leading patent valuation consultancy, InTraCoM GmbH. He’ll be sharing best practises and success stories of others being able to draw out their most valuable assets, and learning when it’s time to let go. This webinar is essential viewing for any innovation leaders who want to get the most value from their intellectual property, and make sure only the best of the best has a place in their portfolio.
In many companies the patent department is seen as a cost center, managed by attorneys, and seen as a necessary evil by corporate executives. In truly innovative companies the patent function is seen as a profit center, and is imperative for the delivering maximum shareholder value for the organization. These companies use patent analytics to understand the technology environment they operate in, and make certain that they are taking maximum advantage of the investment they make in research and development and the patenting process.
These organizations also have highly engaged corporate executives that are actively involved in the development of the company’s patent portfolio. Patent professionals in these organizations use the principles of diversification, and risk management, concepts that are well understood by senior management to bring these critical participants into the development of the company’s patent strategy.
We will be joined by Anthony Trippe, Managing Director at Patinformatics, who was also recently named as one of the Top 300 IP Strategists by IAM Magazine. He will be sharing examples of how patent analytics can be used to understand technology environments, and competitors will be combined with a discussion on risk and diversification as a framework for building patent portfolios that enable corporate objectives and financial goals.
The recent global hacks on companies and organisations including Merck, Mondolez International, Rosneft and the NHS have demonstrated that all different types of industries are at risk when it comes to cyber attacks/hacks.
Most people think about the obvious affects such as consumer data infringement or loss of functionality but what can an attack mean for your R&D department?
Jeff Middleton, CEO of Lantium, who build bespoke cyber security solutions, will take us through the learning's of recent "Petya" and "WannaCry" attacks, as well as how we can prevent and minimise losses in such instances.
Topics covered in this webinar:
- Recent Global Attacks and learning
- How Cyber attacks affect R&D, M&A and IP
- What to consider when creating a cyber-safety strategy.
Essential viewing for anyone that runs a company where data could be at risk.
Many companies are unaware of the different innovation incentives around the world. Some will go as far as applying for foreign patent protection but never looking into the Tax relief or grants that are available to them.
In this webinar experts from one of the world’s largest specialist R&D Tax consultancies, F. Initiatives; Thomas Hayden and Antoine Abbatucci will be exploring the different funding options available for innovators across Europe, the US and Asia.
