43rd Colloquium of the Ilmenau University of Technology on Patent Information and Intellectual Property Rights under the title Market success by smart IP strategy will take place from June 9 to June 11, 2021.

At the PATINFO2021, we will examine how industrial property rights can help to prevail in the competition. A cleverly designed portfolio with interlocking patents, trademarks and designs helps to protect investments in new technologies. This also includes closely monitoring the IP environment of competitors, from monitoring applications, portfolio analysis and competitive intelligence to revealing patent and trademark infringements - keyword - anti-piracy. Valid patents with a sufficient scope of protection and a cleverly developed patent portfolio are as important as interacting with the patents and applications of other market participants, be it through monitoring, design around, opposition or licensing.
