FIRESIDE CHAT: INNOVATION FRAMEWORK FOR DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
Companies across industries are making the move from providers of "things" to services enabled by digital ecosystems, where new value pools are built on connectivity, big data and advanced analytics or AI. However, this also means a radically different scope of technology and innovation, new business models and complex partnerships. In this chat with executives from Audi, SKF, Microsoft and Sandvik we get their views on topics such as:
1. How will you make money in the new digital context?
2. What are the keys to successful ecosystems and partnering?
3. What are the main sources of competitiveness?
4. What role does IP play in making it all work?
|10:10 - 11:17||
10 KEY QUESTIONS CEOs SHOULD ASK THEMSELVES ABOUT IP
I. How to help enhance M&A and drive deals around a business asset like any others?
II. How to enhance and support your brand
III. How to induce partnerships that I don t have the ability to do today?
IV. How to create standards that protect your IP?
V. How to create oligopolies in a monopoly market?
VI. How to speak the language of the boardroom?
VII. Where my R&D is going?
VIII. How to keep, close, secure primary, secondary and tertiary patents?
IX. How do you develop a real IP strategy?
X. And what should we do to communicate our patent strategy to the Street?

THE NEW IP STRATEGIES FOR THE DIGITAL ECONOMY
Fundamental shifts in the supply and demand for intellectual property have dramatically altered the way leading companies are thinking about IP strategy. Patent owners still assert claims, demand royalties, and seek restraining orders. But today's playbook is increasingly oriented by the belief that companies stand to benefit the most by working with other companies to ensure that they have the freedom to operate specific technology domains. Today, the best IP strategy is often to collaborate rather than confront.
On the supply side, a combination of new legislation (.e.g. pending IP German reform) and critical court decisions in the US has made it harder to get, keep, and weaponize patents. On the demand side, digital disruption is creating a much broader market for IP. With every company becoming a technology company, patents in domains such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things (IoT) are the new coin of the realm. And with the number of potential infringers exploding, many IP owners are starting to see those companies less as adversaries and more as potential markets.
> Is the German the current legislation adapted to complex products in the digital economy?
|11:51 - 12:36||
WHICH LEGAL INSTRUMENTS FOR INNOVATION AND ETHICS?
. context: how to deal with external challenges (trade wars) and internal (massive digitization and digital transformation, time-pressure, etc...)
. shaping the legal process. raising interest in the company and achieving results. tools at stake: BI, TAP, e-discovery, e-billing...
. deliveries models, metrics, KPIs
. long-term strategic approach and tactical decisions as C.O.O. with legal functions
Patent law, Employment law, Competition law, contracts, knowledge and records management, AI, BI and TAP tools (automation workflow technologies), electronic signatures and e-discovery, e-billing for a changing IP service and delivery model, metrics and data driven).

HOW TO RIGHT SIZE YOUR PATENT PORTFOLIO
Adoption of data-driven analytics appears to happen quicker in environments of direct competition like athletics, while until recently the application of data-driven analytics by in-house IP departments seemed slow. However, some very large, highly innovative and well-resourced companies are either growing their portfolios at slower rates or actively working to reduce their overall portfolio size, using tools such as AI to monetize derelict parts of their IP landscape, while retargeting their patent applications through leveraging existing tools to use novelty searches and prior art in a smarter way. Lastly, could we do something about "IP Waste"?
BUDGET CONSTRAINTS VERSUS VOLUME TARGETS: HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR PATENT FILINGS / KPIs WITH A EXPENSES REDUCED BY 30%, WITHOUT HINDERING QUALITY.
Highlight how the Supreme Court ruling had had a clear impact on Amadeus IP activities. Notably, how this decision had acted as a sting to look much more closely at other non-patent, forms of protection for its intangible assets. As budget constraints are becoming more pressing on corporate IP departments, what CIPOs are able to justify as spend to C-suite other than patents such as design rights for interfaces, trade secrets, open-source and defensive publications.

PRESENT AND FUTURE KEY CHALLENGES FACED BY 3 MAJOR BRAND-PORTFOLIO OWNERS AND HOW THE CRISIS AMPLIFIED THEIR RELEVANCE.
The need for brand protection and the threat of online counterfeiting have been exacerbated by the pandemic: how to balance budget pressures with decisive legal technology and team orchestration to drive the road to success.
· The framework of our digital transformation journey and the "legaltech" implications
· How to define a strategy from the global legal affairs / legal innovation around the technologies consumers need?
· How to use advanced tools (worldwide monitoring, artificial intelligence, image recognition...) to survey - in real-time, from the headquarters - an entire, up-to-dated portfolio of trademarks (TM from operating companies, online reputation, etc...), domain names and patents and to perform and achieve that transformation with speed, accuracy, intelligence and comprehensiveness.
· Using the latest available technology to track online counterfeits.
· Q&A session (online)

KEY CASES IN PATENTING AI AND CII UNDER THE EPC.
This session explores invention-spotting strategies for AI innovations. The aftermath of the US Supreme Court's Alice decision can lead to some AI innovations being categorized as patent-ineligible "abstract ideas". However, the European Patent Office (EPO) has a stable and long-established body of case law in the assessment of computer-implemented inventions via the problem-solution approach. Review of useful practical examples from EPO case law of attempts to protect AI inventions.
