  • How to broaden patent claims: Lessons from automotive and consumer goods
    How to broaden patent claims: Lessons from automotive and consumer goods Jason Lye, IAM 300 Strategist & CTO of Lycoworks Recorded: Jun 20 2018 40 mins
    With innovation budgets increasing each year and R&D becoming more competitive, many organisations are getting creative in how they increase the reach of their IP protection.

    One technique is to widen IP claims by patenting human experiences induced by the product or service. This is often seen in the automotive and consumer goods sectors, commonly describing visual and tactile sensations around the original technology.

    Jason Lye, IAM 300 Strategist & Founder of Lyco Works has worked with many clients using this technique and will be hosting this webinar to discuss how your company could benefit from broadening patent claims in this way. He will also cover:

    - What patenting human experiences really means and looks like
    - The importance of not forgetting the human-impact your technologies create
    - How claim-broadening technique offers another layer of protection for your technology
    - Why it will make it much harder for your competitors to trap you in litigation cases.
  • How to find new innovation opportunities using technology mapping and IP data
    How to find new innovation opportunities using technology mapping and IP data Pari Datta, Senior innovation and research consultant at Cambridge Design Partnership Recorded: Jun 13 2018 39 mins
    Mature products, such as smartphones and cars, tend to become very similar – whether they are from different manufacturers or the latest model from the same manufacturer.

    Speed, power and slight changes in appearance become the focus for many companies. Marketing can make advances through insightful methods to dig deeper into opportunities from unmet needs – but the right science and technology are required to make them real.

    R&D teams have access to incredible developments in science and technology, such as artificial intelligence and the latest developments in genetics, but struggle to find how to link them with market opportunities. Opportunities become ‘market pull’ or ‘technology push’, without joining together. Innovation opportunities must connect customer needs with science and technology to be more than just ideas or technologies.

    This webinar will demonstrate how technology mapping can be used to discover new opportunities, whichever direction you start from, and how IP landscapes can then help you to make the right connections.

    Please note: Registrants details will be shared with the presenter after the webinar.

  • Mitigating risk through IP strategy and innovation alignment
    Mitigating risk through IP strategy and innovation alignment Candice Landry from 10e5 Solutions | Jon Calvert from ClearViewIP | Jim Hinton from Bereskin & Parr Recorded: Mar 7 2018 60 mins
    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
