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
In this interactive webinar, you will have the opportunity to learn about proven strategies and best practices for solving compliance challenges from our world-leading experts in FCPA, UK Bribery Act, and the growing number of international compliance laws.
Join in the conversation with Kevin Braine, Joe Spinelli and John Arvanitis from Kroll, and Erica Salmon Byrne from Ethisphere, as they share their insights on the practical implications of the most significant findings in the ABC Report, including the growing concern over third party and reputation risk.

The current number of active cyber threats is astounding. Do you know which threats are targeting you right now and which threats are likely to cause greatest harm to your company?
This session examines how correlating network flow data with cyber threat information during incident response provides knowledge of not only what threats are active or targeting you, but which of your assets are being targeted before or during an incident. We examine the many data types used in commonly-shared indicators of compromise and explore which provide for automating correlation with network flow data. The pros and cons of common correlation algorithms are discussed with a focus towards their contributions and limitations to enhancing threat intelligence efforts. Proper network flow correlation should provide a foundation for performing risk-based mitigation that identifies the threats that are creating the greatest loss of value for your organization rather than chasing down the threats deemed most harmful by the industry.

Patent Quality. It is not as common as you might think!
Getting your patent applications right matters more than anything else you will do in patent prosecution. If you start out with a bad quality, you will likely never end up good … with potentially disastrous consequences to your company or client. In this webinar we will discuss how you can improve your patent application drafts utilising the many special tools available in the LexisNexis PatentOptimizer® solution. We will focus on some of the unique aspects of PCT and EPO practice, provide some contrast to US practice, as well as call out some of the major pitfalls encountered in all three offices. Even if you are not a current subscriber to the PatentOptimizer solution, you are bound to learn something of value for your practice.
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.
Outsourcing and strategic partnerships have become a staple in today's business climate, enabling organizations to drive business value and stay ahead of the competition. However, moving company information outside of its own defense perimeter opens an organization up to a myriad of cybersecurity vulnerabilities. Organizations need to have the tools and resources to determine the risk from 3rd party relationships and manage that risk in a timely and consistent manner.
In this webinar, Senior Sales Engineer Ryan Curran will help you learn how to:
~ Identify and monitor threats targeting your extended ecosystem
~ Use a threat intelligence platform for third-party risk management workflows
~ Leverage Threat Indicator Confidence Scoring and pre-packaged threat intelligence to start monitoring 3rd parties within minutes

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.

Ransomware, spear phishing and third party breaches have become a huge problem as organizations become more connected online and expand their cyber footprint. When even the largest and most
sophisticated global organizations, government agencies, and multinational banks are routinely penetrated and taken offline by cyber criminals, how can a concerned enterprise quickly and cost-effectively evaluate their own risk?
During this webinar, Vice President of Intelligence Operations, Eric Olson, and VP of Cyber Security Center, James Carnall, will discuss how organizations can evaluate their internal and third party cyber risk to:
· Minimize your attack surface for increased visibility
· Make smarter and more cost-effective investments in your security posture
· Proactively look for potential leaks, theft of sensitive data or other holes in your security posture
R&D represents a significant investment for most companies, but innovation leaders often struggle to accurately measure the output of their R&D activities. The number of new product launches, or revenue generated from products developed through R&D are too simplistic, and can make it difficult to justify investment in long-term R&D projects.
Dr Dierk-Oliver Kiehne, CEO at InTraCoM GmbH, a leading patent valuation consultancy, joins us for a live webinar where he will discuss how patent valuation data can be used to analyse the output of R&D activities.
He will explore:
- How patent valuation data can be used to measure R&D efficiency
- Why it makes sense to use an indicator approach to patent valuation
- Examples of companies who are achieving extremely capital-efficient R&D
- Other ways that IP value can be used to drive corporate strategy
This webinar is essential viewing for all R&D leaders who are interested in understanding patent valuations and measuring the ROI of their R&D activity.

R&D is an expensive business – Research and Development spend in the UK was £31.6 billion in 2015, and R&D expenditure represented 1.68% of GDP, up from 1.66% in 2014 (source: ONS).
While 25% of R&D spend came from the higher education sector and 7% from Government and Research Councils, the majority - a massive 66% of this investment, was made by businesses. But there are easy ways that these companies could be accessing even more money to invest in R&D.
Of course R&D delivers benefits in the form of process efficiencies, new products, intellectual property which can be protected and monetized, and is a is source of long term competitive advantage. But the UK government also encourages R&D through significant tax benefits – so
why are so many businesses still not claiming enough tax relief for R&D?
Brian Williamson, Managing Director at Jumpstart, the UK’s leading tax credit specialists, joins us for this webinar where he will discuss:
- Why the government cares about R&D investment
- The common “white coat” misconception companies have about R&D
- How to get your accountant or auditor to think like a scientist
- Why companies ranging from startups to multinational companies are leaving money on the table and the options available for claiming it back.
