Many IP experts in the IP community at I3PM, the HTB-EPO initiative, and other global IP offices and institutions in national and regional innovation systems have asked Prof. Alexander Wurzer: โ€œwhere can you be sure not to miss any important IP management contentโ€. In fact, you have to follow a number of interesting feedsย  to really keep up with the global developments around IP management. To make this easier he decided to offer his own personal newsletter for IP management. Here you can find the last issues in the archive and also subscribe. A fresh read with all the important IP Management content will be sent to the subscribers every second Thursday at 7.00 (CET), so you can start your day informed.

The next Newsletter will cover the following topics:

Apple has very deep pockets to try a lot of things, and that includes leveraging its trusted brand to become a financial services provider. Apple has a tendency to develop products and businesses that can be scaled – like with the App-Store where Apple gets 30% of every dollar spent and now has hassle with the antitrust regulators.

IP, Innovation, SDG, ESG & Sustainability Key Linkages

Innovation, Intellectual Property (IP), Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG), and sustainability are now very important interconnecting concepts in both the business, corporate & academic worlds. Their proper management should support creating positive changes globally and also help to address various global climate and IP challenges.

How to optimize your scope of patent protection? โ€“ Method Steps performed by Users

Drafting patent applications is a challenging task anyway, but it becomes even more difficult if the requirements of different jurisdictions should be considered. A drafting style working for one jurisdiction may cause major problems in other jurisdictions. Many problems could be avoided if they were considered at the drafting stage.

What is the future of AI?

AI may develop in the future even further to a human like super AI, but already today generative AI can be used in many industries to solve problems, which were hard or impossible to solve before and to make existing processes much more efficient. For example, in the chemical industry generative AI can assist R&D by predicting the most promising drug or material candidates with the needed properties.

Additionally, literature searches to identify relevant information for the creation of new experimental designs and identification of new chemicals as well as the interpretation of the vast amounts of created data during R&D are often still done with relatively simple digital means. In all those use cases the power of large language models has a huge potential of raising efficiency and effectiveness.

Types of Innovation

To understand architectural and component innovation, it is helpful to distinguish between the product as a whole (system) and the individual parts of the product (components). An electric ceiling fan, for example, consists of the following main components: blade, motor that drives the blade, blade guard, control system, and mechanical housing. The overall architecture of the product lays out how the components will work together. Taken together, a fanโ€™s architecture and its components result in a system for moving air inside a room.
