According to a report from the World Intellectual Property Organization, Asia and the US outperform the UK and Europe in terms of patenting activity. Yet the UK and Europe produce some of the world’s best innovations, points out Page White and Farrer.
To compete on a regional and global stage, technology companies should have an Intellectual Property (IP) strategy which supports the aims of the business and at the same time is cost-effective. Its stand will highlight the different types of IP including patents, designs, trademarks and copyright along with their cost implications for the UK, Europe and globally.
Innovation comes in many different guises. Sometimes there will be giant leaps and other times progress will be in small steps. Small steps can be just as valuable as those giant leaps and can be protected.
The specialist patent and trademark attorney firm is showcasing its IP education and audit services at this year’s Southern Manufacturing, which have been used with a range of companies from small start-ups to multi-national companies. The right IP strategy adds commercial and strategic value to a business and should develop alongside company objectives. Putting together the right IP strategy is a partnership taking detailed knowledge of business strategy with a detailed knowledge of IP.
