Patents design rights & standards exploration course



This course addresses all 3 USE perspectives. It shows how some companies can only survive if they position themselves properly in compatibility standards, how innovation is affected by patents, how patent behaviour impacts markets, and how firms adopt specific patenting strategies. It explains how patents have developed far beyond their original role into business assets necessary to obtain freedom to operate, to defend against others and to strategically block them or extract money from them.
