Tego’s technology embeds data and documents directly on an asset, creating business intelligence and powering the internet of things.
By 2020, an estimated 50 billion devices, robots, and sensors will be connected to the internet, and to each other. These devices are impacting every aspect of how we work and live, in what is being described as the 4th industrial revolution.
Timothy Butler, CEO of Tego, will share how the company's intellectual property strategy began to take shape while the Tego was still a very early stage startup. He'll discuss how Tego's IP strategy has evolved as the company has grown, and share insights on best practice for SMEs when managing their IP.
Prior to making an investment in a start-up, investors look to ensure that the team, product, and market aspects are all strong. They then carry out due diligence to expose and plan for potential risks. These usually include financial and legal risks, but more and more investors are focusing on intellectual property too.
PatSnap will be teaming up with Jon Calvert, Managing Director at ClearView IP, to discuss what aspects should be considered when beginning due diligence and how a rigorous approach can secure a greater likelihood of realising substantial investment returns.
In this webinar we will explore:
- What kind of intellectual property does a startup actually have?
- How do I know if the intellectual property position is strong?
- What kind of things should be on my intellectual property due diligence check list?
- How can I put a financial value on the intellectual property?
Welcome to PatSnap. In this initial onboarding webinar, emphasis will be put on understanding the core aspects of intellectual property and applying this to the fundamental tools and features within our system.
You’ll leave these sessions understanding how to:
•Perform basic searches on PatSnap, using IPC’s and boolean operators
• How to filter your search results to ensure only the most relevant patents appear
• Customising your account settings
• Identify individual sections of a patent document, (patent families, citation analysis etc...)
• Utilise your research efforts by saving and sharing your work, building basic lists, or downloading full patent documents.
Intellectual property can account for 70% of a company’s valuation, conflicting views exist on the best way to value patents and IP portfolios, or even whether they can be valued at all.
Dr. Dierk-Oliver Kiehne, CEO at InTraCoM GmbH, a leading patent valuation consultancy, joins us on 8th February to discuss the various ways in which patents can be valued, as well as the benefits and disadvantages of the various approaches.
He will explain how a better understanding of patent valuations can help to support an organisation's strategic goals and suggest ways in which patent portfolio owners can measure and track the value of their patents. There will also be a Q&A session at the end of this webinar where our audience can put their questions to our expert speaker.
This webinar is essential viewing for all patent owners who are interested in understanding patent valuations, regardless of the scale of their business or portfolio.
Loss of IP Can Cost Companies Millions – or Even the Business. Join this Webcast to Learn How to Protect Data in the Internet of Things
Attackers often use reverse engineering to locate software vulnerabilities that they then
can exploit to create counterfeit products, steal sensitive data, or tamper with for sabotage and espionage purposes.
In IoT and embedded systems, this can lead to serious and dangerous hacks, as recent attacks on safety-critical automotive components have shown. How can developers protect against such attacks?
This webcast will discuss widely vetted industry standards and solutions to protect software integrity against cyber violations and safeguard the intellectual property. The webcast will provide a brief overview of the TPM and how it is being used to create secured code and licenses. Attendees will learn how these licenses can be bound to a secure element and integrated into existing business processes. Speakers from TCG members Infineon and WIBU also will answer questions about this approach.
As the value of intellectual property assets has become more widely recognized within corporations, in boardrooms and even in mainstream media, it has rapidly emerged as a viable new asset class that has attracted certain investors.

Three of the world’s leading strategists according to IAM magazine, Raymond Millien of PCT Companies, Abha Divine of Techquity Capital Management, and David Ruder of RPX Corp. will lend their expertise and insight on the following:
* How do IP and private equity mix?
* Who are the investors?
* How are investments identified?

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.

This Webcast will help business leaders understand their own IP position better, and hopefully provide ideas on how to protect and monetise that IP. We will include the findings from a number of business case studies that Knowledge Peers have researched, together with the chance to ask an expert live and online about your own IP position".
