EU - Webinar: Freedom to Operate

While an absolute guarantee of freedom to operate will never be attainable, there are ways of minimizing the risks that can save a company significant resources.

Whenever a company is planning to develop and launch a new product, a major risk, particularly in technology sectors where there is extensive patenting, is that commercialization may be blocked by a competitor who holds a patent for a technology incorporated within that product. This is why many companies, at an early stage, seek to secure their “freedom to operate,” i.e. to ensure that the commercial production, marketing and use of their new product, process or service does not infringe the IP rights of others.
