    The view from 35,000 feet: fundamentally rethinking IP strategy

    IoT and the 4IR will enable industries and technologies to converge through greater connectivity and information sharing. IP managers are faced with exciting opportunities, but also significant challenges.

    • Fundamentally rethinking IP strategy

    • Managing the impacts of IoT, 5G and more

    • Interoperability and security

    Win-win licensing

    As industries and technologies continue to converge with connectivity and real-time information sharing capabilities, opportunities are evolving beyond traditional licensing landscapes. But developing a successful approach can be tricky when you’re diving into new industries and unexplored territories.

    • Getting deals done in new industries and unexplored territories

    • Licensing dynamics for new players

    • What are the pitfalls to look out for?

    New protection paradigms for IoT

    Patent coverage can be tough to obtain and sometimes it is positively inadvisable. Innovators and creators need to devise protection strategies incorporating different kinds of IP right.

    • Patents, trade secrets, trademarks, copyrights – or all of the above

    • The changing climate: the role of defensive platforms, patent pools and NPEs

    • Breaking down the silos and building a fully integrated IP protection strategy in the 4IR

    Data: powering the IoT revolution

    Data is the driving force behind IoT and the fourth industrial revolution. Working out who owns it and how to protect it is more important than ever.

    • Understanding data as an asset

    • Using IP to protect data assets

    • How to exploit data
