Oil company Shell has previously said that taking “the softer approach” to tackling IP infringement yields positive results, but that actually means Shell adopts a practical business strategy, as David Koris, general counsel for intellectual property, explains to WIPR.
Imagine, if you can, having to protect the technology behind vessels used to clean and liquefy natural ocean gas, machines that work way down into the depths of the ocean, and software that analyses geological formations miles beneath the earth’s surface.
That’s the task of David Koris, general counsel for intellectual property at Royal Dutch Shell, better known simply as Shell.
Koris oversees the oil company’s global operations from its headquarters in The Hague, the Netherlands.
