Patents reloaded: new emphasis at the IP summit


The pan-European Intellectual Property Summit is an important rendez-vous for the IP community. This year, the patent focus takes place in Brussels, with more CEOs and more hot topics than ever before, as organiser Premier Cercle explains.

On December 6 and 7, 2012 in Brussels, the pan-European Intellectual Property Summit, ‘Patents Reloaded’, will lay the ground for IP in the boardroom. And that’s a good thing, not only for IP in itself, but also for innovation, growth and the economy as a whole.

The CEOs of Technicolor, Rockstar Consortium and Mosaid will speak at the IP Summit, along with the president of Novozymes Europe and the chief IP officer of Ericsson.

These companies own huge patent portfolios and are particularly skilled at using them as strategic weapons. Whether it’s licensing or litigation, patents are big business now, and dealing with them is a fact of corporate life.
