Japan ranks first globally for the number of patents issued. But when it comes to revenue generated from those patents, the picture is not so bright. While a patent is often seen as a ticket to the all-important conversation with those behind the gatekeeper, many companies do not actually have a patent portfolio or intellectual property (IP) that fit their business strategies.
Key questions to ask include:
- Why is your IP important?
- How can you protect your IP?
- How much will it cost?
- How do Silicon Valley companies grow their portfolios?
- What strategies work in Japan?
- What do you do if your IP is stolen?
- What if you are accused of infringement?
