The primary reason why people register their IP - including trademarks patents - is to protect their ideas from being used and monetized by others. Companies across the world spend trillions of dollars on research and patent thousands of new technologies each year, so why would you ever need IP insurance?
We see dozens of cases each year where companies and individuals are claiming infringement upon their IP and that's when IP insurance comes into play.
PatSnap is joined by Erik Alsegard, IP Practice Leader and Lewis Parle, In-House Solicitor and IP Underwriter, from CFC Underwriting to discuss the whys and hows of IP Insurance.
Join this webinar to learn about the risks of IP, if you should consider insurance and what are the pros and cons of the options available to you when it comes to protecting your Intellectual Property assets.
Threats in today’s cyber landscape are becoming increasingly sophisticated. To successfully fend off attacks, organizations need security tools that work effectively and efficiently across vendors; however, it is not uncommon for one vendor’s products to not work with others, despite claiming support for standards. In this webinar, we will introduce some of the key challenges a heterogeneous integrated security environment must solve and how STIX/TAXII2 standards-based technologies support solving those challenges in a new and effective manner.
The term innovation can refer to various stages within a product development cycle, and an invention created in this process can be protected by various forms of intellectual property. Most inventions are created to solve and address consumer needs and problems. To do that job, products enter the market, creating opportunities for the business or the inventor who owns it. A businesses’ IP strategy plays an important role in the success of a new product by ensuring competitive advantage in the market, for now and the future.
However, IP protection can often be seen as an output of product development, leaving the organisation open to risk—whether it's in a new or an existing market. So how can you align IP protection with your invention creation to ensure your IP team is involved at the most effective points throughout the product development process? Too early could mean a slower time to market, and too late could mean lost opportunities in the market.
In this webinar, we’ll be discussing how your organisation can mitigate risk, by aligning your IP and innovation strategy. We will also be looking at:
- Examples of successful organisations who have aligned their IP and innovation
- Intellectual property & open innovation
- Why IP should be a part of the innovation process, not an event
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.
Our webinar with LookingGlass’ Senior Directors of Intelligence, Olga Polishchuk and Jonathan Tomek will explore how you and your security team can benefit from finished intelligence, including insights into key topics like policy, high-profile events, and threat trends. Whether you need to know more about international business law or want to a specific threat actor’s profile, having strategic intelligence at your fingertips can help keep your organization safe from cyber and physical threats.
“I have to prepare a report for our senior management, but don’t have the necessary intel.”
“We have an international event happening in our city. Having strategic intelligence will help our security team be prepared.”
“If my team had access to finished intelligence, they would be better able to predict lateral movements by adversaries.”
Join us on February 21 @ 2PM ET to learn how you can enable your security team to make better tactical and business decisions.

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.
With the year approaching its end, many IP departments will be looking at how best to rationalise their work for 2018. This webinar explores how to ensure your trademark portfolio is in the best possible shape using a two part verification and audit process to save you time and money on your IP assets, as well as analyzing your current and planned costs and guiding your filing strategy in the new year.
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 is fast becoming one of the largest, and most valuable items on many organisations balance sheet. These assets can bring to light considerable risks, and opportunities, during M&A.
By looking at the IP portfolio of an organisation, you can get an idea of whether you're strengthening, or weakening your market position and which assets will be the most valuable after the M&A.
In this webinar, we'll be looking at the role IP plays in mergers and acquisitions, as well as:
- What kind of due diligence to consider when looking into patent portfolios
- How to use intellectual property to highlight, and avoid risks during M&A
- How to make better decisions when navigating risks and opportunities
We know that companies who innovate and patent new technologies have an array of tools they use to research ideas, project manage and look at patent data. Often large and small organisations will depend on external law firms to complete and sign off final FTO searches. This can be expensive and time-consuming, especially considering that your lawyers won’t be technology experts like yourself.
So how can you reduce the time and cost and increase the accuracy of your FTO searches? We are joined by Dylan Adams, Patent Attorney and best selling writer to talk about how to lay the groundwork for your FTO, whether you are using an in-house counsel team or an external law firm.
This webinar will discuss:
* How to effectively describe your invention to an attorney
* What an attorney needs to make search quicker
* Prior art search that can benefit your FTO
