Intellectual property law is crucial to ensuring that you or your organization have exclusive rights to that assets that you’ve created. The BrightTALK intellectual property community has thousands of professionals focused on learning and exchanging information about intellectual property management, intellectual property software and how to protect intellectual property. Join the community for access to free, interactive presentations or attend live webinars to have your questions answered by IP lawyers and industry experts.
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
By now, the majority of us have likely been inundated with stories about third party data breaches and how one vendor’s vulnerability can cost your organization millions. But how do you know if you’re doing enough to stop third party risk?
As we enter 2018, new U.S. and European cyber regulations are going into effect, and organizations can no longer check the box when it comes to their vendors’ cybersecurity. You are not only liable for knowing where you are most at-risk, but now you must also understand how that risk affects your organization and identify a solution for mitigating that risk.
This webinar features guest speaker Nick Hayes, Senior Analyst at Forrester and LookingGlass VP of Intelligence Operations Eric Olson. They will delve into the third party risk landscape: our current state of affairs, and where the industry is moving, as well as how you can take a different approach to third party risk prevention, including:
• How to see where your vendors are already compromised
• The importance of actionable intelligence for real-time mitigation
• Why a continuous monitoring solution is the future of third party risk
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.

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.
Rich with investment opportunities and positive demographics — a young and dynamic population with growing disposable income and upward mobility — the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) continues to attract international acquirers.
In 2016, the region recorded 534 M&A transactions valued at US$57.9bn, and Q1 2017 sustained the momentum with 118 deals worth US$14.7bn. This was a year-on-year increase of 8% in value and 7% in volume over the same period in 2016. For foreign inbound M&A, the ASEAN saw 223 deals worth US$23.7bn in 2016, a 10% rise in volume but a 16% drop in value from US$28.1bn (202 deals) in 2015. In 2017, volumes have remained relatively steady while values have shot up, with the first quarter registering as much as 45% of 2016’s annual total.
Join Kroll's Managing Director and Head of Southeast Asia Richard Dailly as he shares insights on the ways to spot and mitigate risks before entering into cross-border M&A transactions in the ASEAN.

The stage-gate process is as ubiquitous in R&D as doors are in the real-world. But, like doors, stage-gate processes aren't always the best solution for filling a gap. They can be overly elaborate (leading to slowness), fixated on pruning rather optimising (leading to negativity), and lacking in flexibility (leading to missed opportunities).
Join our webinar as we explore:
- The shortcomings of the stage-gate process
- Potential alternatives that could drive more efficiency and productivity
This webinar is essential viewing for any innovation leaders who are looking to take their innovation strategy out of its comfort zone and to the next level.

Junte-se aos especialistas da Kroll para uma discussão sobre as maneiras mais eficientes de estruturar uma investigação interna, com exemplos reais do trabalho desenvolvido pela principal consultoria global de gestão de riscos corporativos e investigações.
Innovation has been the buzzword of the new Asian economy. We are living in an age whereby you are either disrupting the way things are done, or are being disrupted by new business models or technologies. As business leaders in ASEAN, we have to stay ahead of the game in order to survive an environment that is VUCA – Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous. The speakers will provide insights to: -
- Why disruptive thinking is the key to UNCOVER the latent potential of your business here in ASEAN;
- How agile creation can UNLOCK massive commercial potential of Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs); and
- What ways IPRs can help you UNLEASH new value for your business.
In addition to speaking as Innovators and IP Specialists, the speakers will also be sharing about innovation and IP from their own entrepreneurship experience.
In many organisations, there is a widening gap in the communication between these departments; R&D may invent something with the intention of filing a patent only to find out later from the IP department of pre-existing IP which renders their research (and costs) effectively wasted.
Here at PatSnap, our clients often tell us that the two teams can no longer work independently, so we thought we'd explore how to improve communication between the two divisions.
We will be joined by Laura Schoppe an industry expert from the world of R&D and IP, and get her insight into the five most important things the two teams should never hide from each other.
This webinar is essential viewing for any innovation leader, across any division looking to improve cross team collaboration and flexibility.
It’s believed that 9 out of 10 start ups fail every year. With universities being such a big hub of excitement, hard work, experimentation and of course…innovation, a number of universities – and companies – have introduced in-house incubators and accelerators to help ease the pressure many start-ups can feel. As the interest in entrepreneurship has grown in recent years, models for delivering these programmes have evolved to keep pace.
Britta Wyatt joins PatSnap to discuss current trends in start-up incubation, what the business world can learn from universities.
As widespread unauthorized product distribution reaches a new level of complexity, brand owners are finding themselves mired in a “whack-a-mole” battle against fraudsters. Unauthorized sellers are adept at setting up new sites and marketplace listings almost as quickly as they are taken down. Meanwhile, their multi-level marketing networks allow them to hide behind layers of anonymity.
Please join MarkMonitor brand protection experts Josh Hopping and Annie Wood as they discuss how to generate actionable intelligence and leverage investigative tactics to disrupt and dismantle infringing online networks at their source.
During this webinar, you’ll learn how to:
-Identify interconnected networks of infringing activity and shut them down

The global alcoholic drinks market is expected to be worth over $1.4 billion by 2020, and is showing no signs of slowing down. Whilst it seems there's a new craze every month in the industry, one consumer trend that has stuck out recently is innovative alcohol brewing.
Over the last few years, it's estimated that in Britain alone, the number of smaller breweries has doubled, with independent beer brands becoming commonplace in pubs and restaurants.
So, we've decided to explore the innovation trends of this industry, speaking to some brewing experts along the way to see where they think the trends are heading for 2018. We will also be looking at:
Since Blockchain was conceptualised in 2008, it has been expanding rapidly in popularity and trend. Originally used by the likes of Bitcoin to track payments it has a multitude of different applications and is now regarded as a "Foundational Technology".
In this webinar Raphael Roche will be talking about:
-Applications and big players in the industry
-Intellectual Property tied to Blockchain
-The future of the technology
Many companies have influence in markets because they make essential products. Think about the products all around us the metals, plastics and various other materials that make up our world. We can see how a change in manufacturing processes or supply could influence the whole industry.
We are joined by Dr.Shafiq Kabir, Chief Innovation Officer at Smoltek AB, to learn how companies who rely on only Intellectual Property are working to change the market. Smoltek specialises in nanomaterials and their applications and brings together industry, intellectual property and manufacturers together.

Patent searching is something most IP counsel is very familiar with. It's your day to day when looking at Freedom to Operate, competitive analysis and portfolio management.
However, it can be hard to predict what you need in a search when you are not a technical expert. In this webinar, we will teach you how to construct the most effective searches using boolean and a few other tips and tricks on how to ensure you include all the technical detail you need.
Intellectual Property is fast becoming one of the largest items on a company balance sheet. Most organisations are aware of their patent and other IP assets but how can a merger or acquisition change that?
IP data can tell us much more than just the value of patents - by looking at the IP portfolios of an organisation you can get an idea of whether you are strengthening or weakening your market position and which assets will be the most valuable after the M&A.
In this webinar, we will be showing you some hypothetical M&A's and mapping out how exactly this would impact company value, market share and Freedom to Operate just by looking at their patent portfolios, as well as giving you tips on managing your portfolios so that you can make them work harder for your organisation.
Time to Market is an essential metric that R&D teams are measured on. This becomes even more important when we are talking about patented chemicals and processes within the Medical, Pharma and Lifesciences.
If your competitor beats you to market all the time and money spent on research and development becomes a sunk cost, but how can data change that for you?
Using patent and journal data you can give your research teams the tools to quickly validate ideas and decide if they are worth pursuing and simultaneously remove the bottleneck that is placed on Data Analysts.
Join this webinar to learn how data can be applied to research and how this could cut costs and reduce time to market.
