WIPO-CII Advanced Workshop on Patent Drafting, Patent Filing, and Post-Issuance Options and Strategies for Software & Electronics Sector

In today's technology-driven economy, innovations in software and electronics sector are creating new avenues for doing business. These developments in Information & Communication Technologies, the internet and particularly word-wide-web have also led to increase in patent activity in software & electronic sector in recent years. This exponential growth has resulted in pursuance of aggressive software patent portfolio by major IT companies.

A well-drafted software patent could make a crucial difference in the amount of royalty payments awarded in software licensing or litigation. They can contribute significant capital to a company, increase market share, foreclose competition, provide income streams and create business opportunities. Yet, the scope of a patent is defined by its patent claims, and obtaining meaningful patent claim coverage involves many complexities appropriate for the guidance of competent patent counsel. Ultimately, the value of a patent largely depends upon well-drafted patent claims that will prevent competition in the subject matter they define.

Further, it is of utmost importance that well drafted patent application should be protected in the countries of interest by adopting an effective patent strategy. An effective patent strategy assists the applicant to identify right market in a cost effective manner. Patent strategy also becomes more complicated and typically more lucrative as the number of patents in a portfolio increases. The program will not only provide IP professionals with a strong foundation in Patent Drafting skills but will also give an opportunity to understand the importance of effective patenting and post-patenting strategy.
