Peter Cowan, Northworks IP | hosted by Kirsty Bell at patsnap.com
Building a patent portfolio today which will have strategic value in the future is an innovation challenge facing all heads of R&D and IP. Generating value from intellectual property is difficult – appetites for licensing and litigation are changing, legal challenges are reshaping validity and appeals processes, and technology abandonment is happening faster than ever before.
As an innovation leader, how can you build and shape a strategic patent portfolio that will sit in tomorrow’s growing market place, positioning your company to take advantage of new and emerging opportunities – in the blue ocean?
PatSnap will be joined by Peter Cowan, IP strategist and Founder of IP strategy advisory firm Northworks IP, for a live webinar on how to use blue ocean strategy to build a strategic patent portfolio.
In this webinar, you will learn:
-What blue ocean strategy looks like in today’s world of IP and innovation
- How to analyse the intersection of technology, patents, and market direction to find innovation blue oceans
- How market incumbents as well as start-ups can use their current position to leverage new growing markets
-The practical considerations and challenges of applying blue ocean strategy to your business objectives
According to a 2016 Gartner Financial Services Innovation Survey, “The biggest threat to innovation is internal politics and an organizational culture which doesn’t accept failure, doesn’t accept ideas from outside, or cannot change.”
Successful innovation means embracing failure, challenging the status quo, and getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. It's easy to fall into a holding pattern, where your team ends up stuck in a rut, doing the same things and expecting different results. What can be done?
Join Cary Paul, director at gothamCulture, a leading consultancy which helps clients achieve exceptional organizational performance through the lens of culture, leadership, and strategy.
We will discuss:
• Pattern Recognition: How to identify if your organization, teams or individuals are "stuck" (reoccurring issues, lack of innovation, etc)
• Pattern Disruption: Exercises, approaches, and tricks for attacking challenges in new and highly engaging ways
• Sustained Culture of Innovative Thinking: The roles of leadership, management, and personnel in fostering a change in the "way work gets done"

In this live webinar, Dr. Scott Collins, CTO and VP of Research and Development at TeVido, will explain TeVido’s innovation journey, from concept, through research and prototying, to funding, patenting, and testing the company’s highly innovative offering in the field of biotechnology.
China is becoming one of the major technology and patent generators and are already filing more patents than the US and Europe. It is essential for intellectual property owners to understand the truth and the myths surrounding IP in China, and this webinar is essential listening for any individual or company looking to better understand intellectual property rights in China.
In this webinar, you will learn that IP and its enforcement in China is much more advanced than most people realise:
1. IP law in China is of a high quality by global standards.
2. The quality, cost and timeliness of the “rights” (patents and trademarks) granted to foreign firms under Chinese law compare well with the rest of the world.
3. Enforcement of patent rights is much cheaper and faster than in most developed countries. The courts, including the IP Tribunal of the Supreme Court, are handing down some very sophisticated judgement.
4. About 95% of the foreign companies litigating their patents in China win their cases
To dive deeper into this topic, we will be joined by our guest speaker, Ian Harvey, former CEO, BTG plc and Course Professor, Tsinghua University, Beijing. He is currently involved in development of IP in China and is pressing for the teaching of IP as part of a strategy in business school programmes worldwide.
Dr Lisa Haile presents this webinar exploring issues and strategies for diagnostic and therapeutic patents and licenses.
This webinar will address questions such as:
Are diagnostic tests patentable?
What are the effects of the Alice ruling and the Myriad Genetics case on patents?
What strategies can be used to avoid the pitfalls associated with patenting around "laws of nature"?
What are the latest rulings and precedents around diagnostics and genetic markers and how is the landscape evolving?
This is essential viewing for anyone involved with intellectual property and innovation in the life sciences sector.
The People’s Republic of China (PRC) represents a massive market opportunity for ambitious businesses, but issues can quickly arise around supply chain management, partnerships, and distribution. When valuable intellectual property is concerned, it’s important to maximise commercial opportunities in China whilst also safeguarding and enforcing your rights as an IP owner.
Join Dan Plane, Director at Simone Intellectual Property Services (SIPS) for practical advice on doing business in China – from identifying reliable manufacturers and suppliers, to working with distribution partners and managing the practicalities of licensing agreements in a radically different culture. In this webinar Dan will give practical recommendations for intellectual property owners on best practice gained from years of experience of working and advising clients in PRC.

How do you know if your innovative idea is really original? How can you find patents that might be encroaching on your existing portfolio? The key how you search for similar patents - but as our presenter Jarrod Britton will explain, this aspect of patent search is as much an art as a science.
In this webinar, we will explore:
• The benefits and limitations of free patent search tools
• Effective techniques you can use when identifying similar patents in your innovation space
• Basic techniques like keyword and classification searching
• How semantic search can help you to go deeper and find more relevant patents
• Avoiding common mistakes when exploring similar IP
Counterfeit medicines cause an estimated 170,000 deaths a year, with the WHO estimating more than 120,000 people a year die in Africa as a result of fake anti-malarial drugs. This is also having an incredibly harmful impact on the brands and companies who are being imitated.
Emerging economies, particularly in South East Asia, present a real challenge for companies who are keen to expand internationally while defending their brand and products against counterfeiters. A robust brand protection strategy is required, but distance, culture, technology, and different levels of intellectual property protection can create an extremely difficult environment in which to operate.
Brand protection is still a niche activity, but companies are starting to realise that brand protection offers a real chance to materially affect the bottom line of their business, show their respect for consumers and deliver the consumers’ expectation of products.
Joel Stobart is Chief Technology Officer at Custodian Solutions; a novel brand protection company that uses cloud-based software to re-think and re-design the way brand protection is carried out, joins us alongside Jeff Moore, Operations Director at AAL; a Global Intelligence consultancy who manage investigations and provide solutions to clients brand protection issues worldwide – for this webinar on brand protection strategies for intellectual property owners operating in South East Asia.
A well-managed patent portfolio can generate significant revenue for patent owners. But as a portfolio grows, so too does the annuity bill.
Managing patent annuity costs is a major issue in the patent industry and it's a topic which has hit the press recently as there is a nascent class action underway in the US involving a major payment provider.
PatSnap will be joined by Peter Rouse, Director at Patent Annuity Costs Limited for a webinar on strategies for managing patent annuities, giving patent portfolio managers an overview of the key considerations to be aware of.
There will also be a Q&A session where you can put your questions on this topic to Peter.
Intellectual property can account for 70% of a company’s valuation, conflicting views exist on the best way to value patents and IP portfolios, or even whether they can be valued at all.
Dr. Dierk-Oliver Kiehne, CEO at InTraCoM GmbH, a leading patent valuation consultancy, joins us on 8th February to discuss the various ways in which patents can be valued, as well as the benefits and disadvantages of the various approaches.
He will explain how a better understanding of patent valuations can help to support an organisation's strategic goals and suggest ways in which patent portfolio owners can measure and track the value of their patents. There will also be a Q&A session at the end of this webinar where our audience can put their questions to our expert speaker.
This webinar is essential viewing for all patent owners who are interested in understanding patent valuations, regardless of the scale of their business or portfolio.
