That the automotive industry is especially exposed to IP risks due to the digital transformation was shown in many spectacular cases of the last years, like Nokia vs Daimler or Broadcom vs Volkswagen. Therefore, every company from the supplier to the manufacturer needs to make their IP management homework and minimize IP risks. Today, this can be achieved by the DIN 77006 standard in Germany or the international ISO 56005 standard. More about the best practice of patent protection for digital solutions according to DIN77006 can be learned in the regular CEIPI webinars on IP-Management. The Development of ASICs and the role of IP is also a case study in the CEIPI MIPLM master class, which starts every year in January. Here is a short introduction, what ASICs are:
