IP strategy in the US market

- Essentials of Freedom to Operate
Amerikansk flagg og frihetsgudinne
Is your company or client aiming for the US market? To avoid infringing the rights of others, you need to know how the US IP system is rigged and how to strategically secure IP rights in the US.

When positioning your company in the US market, it is important to know how to actively recognise, register and enforce your IP rights strategically. Compared to Norway, it requires a change of mindset and a knowledge of American ethics and business practices. Join this breakfast meeting and learn about important aspects of IP strategy and planning for the US market.

Key topics

  • Innovation and IP rights in the US market in practice
  • How to protect your own technology and include technology that can be used in defensive thinking
  • How to avoid or process patent litigation
  • Panel discussion about IP experiences and challenges in the US market

This morning you will meet Nirav N. Desai, director at Sterne Kessler's Trial & Appellate and Electronics Practice Groups, and Arne Øyen, President and CEO at Sonitor Technologies Group.

Take advantage of this unique opportunity

Only those who join us at Sandakerveien 64 will get the opportunity to talk to the speakers after the presentations and ask questions in an open Q&A from 10-1030. 

For whom?

This breakfast meeting is for IP professionals, consultants and companies with export ambitions to the United States.
