  • Making patent searches more effective with Boolean
    Making patent searches more effective with Boolean Dvorah Graeser from KISSPatents and Ruta Sudmantaite @ PatSnap Feb 28 2018 4:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    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.
  • Mitigating risk through IP strategy and innovation alignment

    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

    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.

  • Protecting your patents: What are the options?
    Protecting your patents: What are the options? Erik Alsegard from CFC Underwriting and Ruta @ PatSnap Mar 21 2018 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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.

  • How to identify threats and opportunities in M&A using patents
    How to identify threats and opportunities in M&A using patents Jessie Parker @ PatSnap Mar 28 2018 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    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
