  • Developing a successful brand protection strategy Developing a successful brand protection strategy Joel Stobart, CTO of Brand Custodian, and Jeff Moore, Operations Director at AAL Recorded: Feb 22 2017 50 mins
    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.

  • Patent Industry Challenges for 2017: PTAB, Trump, and Design Patents Patent Industry Challenges for 2017: PTAB, Trump, and Design Patents Gene Quinn, patent attorney and founder of IPWatchdog.com Recorded: Dec 15 2016 60 mins
    What does the Apple vs Samsung SCOTUS ruling mean for the patent industry in 2017?

    Gene Quinn and special guests look back at the most important moments of 2016, and consider the issues that look set to shape the patent industry in 2017

    It is that time once again when we look back on the previous year in preparation to close the final chapter on 2016, and we begin to look ahead and ask what is in store for the new year.

    Gene Quinn, patent attorney and founder of IPWatchdog.com, will moderate this discussion, alongside a panel of very special guests.

    Join us as we discuss:

    2016: The Year of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board – From the Supreme Court deciding Cuozzo, to the Federal Circuit spending much of the year rubber stamping the PTAB, it has been a rollercoaster year.

    2016: Software Patents Strike Back – A series of Federal Circuit decisions post-Alice have started to provide meaningful insight into how software can be described so that it will be considered patent eligible.

    2017: Regulatory Reform NOT Patent Reform – Patent reform will almost certainly not be a top priority for the Trump Administration, but regulatory reforms to the PTAB could be seen and may be quite significant and beneficial to patent owners.

    2017: Supreme Court to Decide Samsung v. Apple - The decision will either validate the value of design patents or make design patents virtually worthless.
  • Commercialising IP: Bridging the gap between academia and industry Commercialising IP: Bridging the gap between academia and industry Bruno Reynolds, Senior Consultant at Isis Enterprise, Ben Oakley, Consultant at Isis Enterprise Recorded: Dec 13 2016 54 mins
    Resource constraints, financial and human, mean that most universities simply do not have the luxury of being able to back every research commercialisation opportunity. Therefore, it is essential to develop a strategy and process that optimises the chances of backing winners, be it to maximise the financial return or to address the non-financial impact agenda.


    PatSnap will be teaming up Isis Enterprise, the innovation consultancy division of Oxford University Innovation, to discuss some key measures that can be taken to identify promising commercialisation projects that are underpinned by strong intellectual property. We will also be providing insight on methods for trimming and shaping academic patent portfolios so that they are optimised for strong overall returns.

  • Next Generation Data Breach Response: Preparing Your C-Suite and Board Next Generation Data Breach Response: Preparing Your C-Suite and Board King & Spalding, Rite Aid, and Kroll Recorded: Dec 8 2016 58 mins
    In today’s complex and ever-changing security landscape, every C-Suite and Board knows of cyber risk, but what does it really mean to be prepared to respond to a data breach incident? Top executives do not have to become cyber security experts, but they must make sure their organization’s breach response plans and strategies are defined and set. While they will not directly lead technical, legal and notification efforts to address data breaches, they do need to act as internal champions of proper planning and prevention.

    Identifying and closing security gaps, directing communication channels, and developing and regularly testing incident response plans are as important now as managing any other business risk or concern. Therefore, company leadership must take charge and direct their organizations to conduct extensive preparation efforts to mitigate those risks and make certain everyone stands ready to execute against the established procedures and policies when a breach occurs.
    In this webinar, you will hear from experts who have been on the inside and outside of data breach response efforts. You will learn:

    •Why the C-Suite and Board need to champion planning and prevention efforts.
    •How to get Executive buy-in.
    •Ways to build stronger response structures from the top.
    •How to construct response architectures. Who needs to be responsible for what?
    •Cyber Risk – What are the latest threats and what does the C-Suite and Board need to understand?
    •Developing and directing an Incident Response Plan: Where do the C-Suite and Board fit in?
    •Examples our experts have seen – the good and the bad

    On June 13, 2016, the United States Supreme Court decided that the two-part Seagate test being used to decide whether or not an infringer is subject to enhanced damages was inconsistent with the statutory authority (35 U.S.C. §284) relied on for those claims.

  • IP considerations and due diligence when investing in start-ups IP considerations and due diligence when investing in start-ups Duncan Clark, Head of Product Marketing at PatSnap & Jon Calvert, Managing Director at ClearViewIP Recorded: Nov 9 2016 46 mins
    Prior to making an investment in a start-up, investors look to ensure that the team, product, and market aspects are all strong. They then carry out due diligence to expose and plan for potential risks. These usually include financial and legal risks, but more and more investors are focusing on intellectual property too.

    PatSnap will be teaming up with Jon Calvert, Managing Director at ClearView IP, to discuss what aspects should be considered when beginning due diligence and how a rigorous approach can secure a greater likelihood of realising substantial investment returns.

    In this webinar we will explore:

    - What kind of intellectual property does a startup actually have?
    - How do I know if the intellectual property position is strong?
    - What kind of things should be on my intellectual property due diligence check list?
    - How can I put a financial value on the intellectual property?

    India remains an attractive destination for foreign investors as its economic fundamentals and optimism about its prospects remain strong. From a macroeconomic perspective, India is one of the fastest growing major emerging markets, with recent projections from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) pointing to a fiscal growth of 7.4% versus a 6.6% expansion in China for 2016.
