WIPR spoke to Gustav Brismark, head of IPR strategy at Ericsson, about the importance of patents in the mobile communications industry.
What are the main challenges associated with IP at Ericsson?
The challenges and the main issues we work on are the same as in the technology field. It’s our ambition to stay in the lead in the development of mobile communications and that requires strong emphasis on research and development.
In Ericsson’s case we are focusing on being the leader in the development of the standardised cellular networks in the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). IP-wise, we work very closely with the patent department and the research groups to ensure that we can protect any innovations that Ericsson is contributing to.
