Description

There are significant opportunities for European-based small and medium-sized businesses (SMEs) in SEA. However, as IoT devices by their nature typically require the application of several interdependent technologies, an SME is unlikely to provide solutions in all areas. Therefore it may need to disclose its innovations to third parties, increasing the risk of copying if preventive measures are not put in place (even before entry to the market is considered). Therefore, it is important to establish a comprehensive intellectual property (IP) strategy that considers all available forms of IP protection in order to minimise the risks associated with entering markets in the SEA.
