Patent protection for IT solutions 

Podczas spotkania przedstawimy podstawowe aspekty prawne, jakie należy wziąć pod uwagę w procesie wrogiego przejęcia, w tym także najnowsze zmiany w przepisach oraz ich praktyczne zastosowanie. Omówimy również studia przypadków, na bazie których zaprezentowane zostaną wnioski i wskazówki, jak z sukcesem przeprowadzić proces obrony przed wrogim przejęciem.

We are pleased to invite you to another meeting within the series of workshops "Eversheds for Innovation" launched last year. On 26 September we will talk about patent protection for IT solutions.

Why is it worth to participate?

During the workshop we will talk about whether and how to protect information technology solutions. We will show the benefits that patents bring to the development of a company. We will explain differences in the practice of the European Patent Office (EPO), the Patent Office of the Republic of Poland (UPRP) and the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for patents on information technology solutions. We will also discuss how to choose the optimal patent strategy.

Patent disputes e.g. between giants such as Apple vs. Samsung, show how important the protection of new technology solutions is. So, if you develop software, applications or other IT products, or you already have such solutions, then our workshop is for you.

  • Why patents are important to your business (with particular emphasis on the internationalization of business operations)
  • Examples of IT solutions with patentability (similarities and differences in practice of patenting IT solutions by UPRP, EPO and USPTO)
  • Step-by-step patenting procedure (with particular emphasis on EPO principles and practices)
  • Patent strategy (with particular emphasis on internationalization)
  • Examples of the cases in which we represented clients (from searching for to obtaining international patent protection)
