Patent Business Lawyer in Asia

Patent Attorney practicing Patents, Corporate Law, Mergers and Acquisitions, Venture Financing, Startup Technology Law

Summary:

Inventors and small business owners have always found the patent strategy a complicated maze for navigation, and patent attorney Rahul Dev has recently launched an innovative intellectual property creation program to address such needs. Not only this program is cost-effective, his decade long experience as patent attorney and technology business lawyer has proven to be an invaluable asset during development of this program aimed at innovative companies worldwide.

Rahul Dev, patent attorney and corporate lawyer, has launched a new small business program, called ITPAS (Ideas to Patents and Strategy), which will seek to expedite the process of creating valuable patents with a view to add value to a company’s intangible assets. The idea is to get global inventors and innovative business owners to define the title and ownership of creative business models, which can further be patented across multiple jurisdictions (US, Europe, Asia Pacific), subject to the patent eligibility criteria.

This would mean lesser chances of disputes between Startup CoFounders in cases one or more founders decide to leave the venture midway. ITPAS would create a means to sidestep the often long and complicated process of defining and claiming intellectual property ownership.

“It is a strategic patent creation program intended to really eliminate the friction of the possible conflicts relating to patent ownership,” explained Patent Attorney Rahul Dev in an interview. “So the typical patent process for small businesses and individual inventors is challenging, exact patent scope and rights of ownership are difficult to identify for both clients and patent lawyers. Clients tend to start out really high believing their innovative products will disrupt the market and patent lawyers tend to start out really low citing complicated procedure to obtain patent rights, and negotiations can take months instead of weeks.”

Dev further explained, “So what this program really does is instead of filing full-fledged patent applications right away, clients are counselled to first define their inventions in a proprietary format provided to them, which is subsequently vetted to determine the most valuable and innovative features. Thereafter, such features are protected by way of an initial level IP protection, including provisional patent applications, copyrights, trademarks and design patents. This helps in saving costs and in certain cases, strong contracts and agreements are drafted to ensure protection via trade secret.”

“Future plans include actively growing the patent consulting portfolio,” Dev said. It is part of the broader efforts to grow the patent consulting practice beyond Asia growing forward and expand the business in US and Europe.” In past, Rahul Dev has handled multiple issues regarding false defamation on social media (Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter), and while this isn’t directly related, you can likely bet his experience in getting defamatory content removed promptly by closely communicating with legal cells of tech companies is helping this aggressive new IP creation strategy.

Talk to any working professional who has worked for 5 years or more seeking career advice, and majority will give you a common answer about how they committed blunders during their early stages, or how they focused too much on resume and ignored the skills, or how they lost a chance to secure their dream job.
No matter what subjects we study, everyone has a dream job and a life goal somewhere lost between daily nuances of college life. What we miss during college days is a blueprint or master plan to ensure that our acts are in sync with our dream job and life goals.

List Down Your Interests

A common issue faced by many students is finding answer to a question that bothers them throughout their college journey:

“How to find a dream job?”

To find answer to this question, we seek guidance of anyone and everyone we know. But we miss one crucial point, no one can help us find our dream job unless we know what exactly our dream job is.

Do we ever make a list of 10 things we want to do after college?

Do we ever make a list of our interests?

Do we list down 20 companies we want to work for?

No, most of us don’t do this.

Well, in a perfect world, we should answer questions like these before pursuing our job search.

law school campus students job placement internship training program

There’s a movie starring Tom Cruise, Jack Reacher (2012), which has a scene wherein Tom’s character talks about people and life by saying:

“Look at the people. You tell me which ones are free. Free from debt. Anxiety. Stress. Fear. Failure. Indignity. Betrayal. How many wish that they were born knowing what they know now? Ask yourself how many would do things the same way over again, and how many would live their lives like me.”

Time teaches us everything and during various stages of life, we become mature enough to find our mistakes from the past.

So what’s the way out? How to ensure we don’t make any mistake that can derail our career? Well, we don’t live in a perfect world and mistakes are bound to happen. Making mistakes and learning from them is the only way to graduate in real life.

Focus on Skills

We treat dissertations, projects and internships as a part and parcel of our course syllabus. However, these are hidden gems that can add significant value to our career path. After making a list of our interests, dream companies to work for, things to do after college; we should try to focus on skills that are required to achieve these goals.

For example, if our dream company is Apple, we should focus on its core aspect like reasons to fall in love with every apple device, which is mainly because of its dazzling design and intuitive user-interface. Search about people working in Apple’s design team, read about their work experience, interviews and so on. This way we can list the necessary skill set that can help us achieve our professional goals.

One key thing to note is that the skills will be different from our college curriculum.

This does not always mean that what we learn during college will not help. It is important to understand that academics provide a strong platform to pursue industry skills. Therefore, one should always ensure that academics and skills go hand in hand to achieve success in life.

If you are looking for some motivation, read about founders of companies like Microsoft, Facebook, Dell and Google. All of them started working towards achieving their life goals early in college and see how they are positioned today.

One small piece of advice:

Dropping out of college sounds really cool, only if it’s Harvard

Make the most out of your college journey and don’t focus on resume much, because if you can blend academics with skills, resume will take care of itself, but not vice versa. All the best.

Publication in AutoTech Review – India’s First and Only Automotive Magazine that Speaks the Language of Technology

Details: CONNECTED CARS & IOT – EMERGING TRENDS AND PREDICTIONS

Originally published here.

Tesla and Apple

Tesla founder Elon Musk recently confirmed that he believes Apple is working on producing a car, during an interview with the BBC. So when Elon, who commands greatest authority in electric car industry confirms that technology giant like Apple is working towards building a car, it seems likely that we might see innovative vehicles strapped with Apple logos running on roads in near future.

[slideshare id=XfODcfBJcjfjl&w=595&h=485&fb=0&mw=0&mh=0&style=border: 1px solid #CCC; border-width: 1px; margin-bottom: 5px; max-width: 100%;&sc=no]

Internet of Things (IoT) and Connected Cars – Patent Landscape Highlighting Technology Laws from Rahul Dev

Elon’s predictions may not be true, but one cannot ignore the possibility of path-breaking innovations revamping the automobile industry in coming years. We have already experienced testing of driverless cars by Google. However, autonomous cars becoming mainstream is still a distant reality due to various challenges. At the same time, present day innovations are providing excellent solutions relating to in-car entertainment and communication technologies.

Technology Trends

Technology trends and predictions are best analyzed by reviewing the patents filed by companies across the globe. Patent offices worldwide usually publish the patent applications after filing (pre-grant publications) and subsequently after the patents are granted. This can provide insights regarding future technology trends as filing patents is essential to ensure that R&D activities are duly protected from being copied and innovators get appropriate royalties for their research and development efforts.

In automobile sector, vehicle infotainment and digital dashboards are generating enormous revenues due to the constant need of people to feel connected. Innovations implemented within the interiors of car make people feel connected with their vehicles. A leading example of such innovation is justDrive by Jaguar Land Rover, which turns apps and services from smartphone into a voice-activated experience. This allows the driver to bypass the struggle of searching through multiple apps as justDrive can seamlessly search the apps, and perform other tasks such as sending a text or tweet through natural speech, or playing a desired song.

Jaguar Patent

Jaguar has filed a patent with the US patent office (USPTO) titled “Touch System And Method” that describes a multi-user touch system and a method of controlling a touch system. A general analysis of international patents filed in the classification pertaining to touch panels meant for vehicles reveals some of the major players as illustrated in the chart. This list is not exhaustive but provides an overview of companies who have been actively filing patents in this space.

Patent Licensing

It is common for major companies to cross-license their respective patents and technology to each other, which allows each of them to use other’s patents at reasonable terms. Cross-licensing of patents is common in other sectors as well. For example, in case of smartphones, Apple and Microsoft executed patent cross license agreements that allowed both companies to benefit from their combined research and development efforts. Similar agreement was executed between Google and Samsung.

Apple and Google

Digital innovations by the likes of Apple (CarPlay) and Google (Android Auto) are yet to gain traction but once that happens, smartphones will act as bridging tools to revolutionize automobiles. Moreover, subsequent innovations could potentially eliminate the need of smartphones considering the need of users to expect better capabilities from the dashboard.

Considering Apple’s strong position as technology leader in market, interesting applications and devices are expected from Apple in addition to CarPlay. In 2015, Apple was granted a patent by the USPTO pertaining to “Accessing A Vehicle Using Portable Devices”, which discloses a primary portable device that can access a vehicle by transmitting an activation message including a vehicle access credential to the vehicle. As disclosed therein, the primary portable device can additionally enable a secondary portable device to access the vehicle by transmitting the vehicle access credential to the secondary portable device. In use, the connections between the primary portable device, secondary portable device, and vehicle can be based on a short-range wireless protocol, such as Bluetooth or Bluetooth LE.

Further reading of this patent reveals that a wide variety of portable devices can embody this technology, as the portable devices include a wireless interface, such as a laptop computer, a tablet device, a key fob, a car key, an access card, a multi-function device, a mobile phone, a portable gaming device, a portable multimedia player, a portable music player, a personal digital assistant (PDA), a household device, and/or any portable or non-portable electronic or electro-mechanical device and/or the like. Apple further specifies that exemplary portable devices can be an iPod®, iPhone®, or iPad® device available from Apple Inc. of Cupertino, Calif.

Technology Integration and Product Lifecycle

One potential challenge that automakers and technology companies can face is to integrate technology with product lifecycle and consumer’s buying cycle. For example, in-vehicle entertainment will require constant addition to new content, and such new content will need regular software updates for seamless user experience. Bugs can spoil the consumer’s interest and hence automakers would need to be more proactive in recalling faulty vehicles or providing software improvements. To achieve this, companies will further need strong back-office operations and optimization of supply chain, so that novel driving centric services can be rolled out in a timely manner, thereby providing better monetization schemes for the companies.

To ensure that the connected cars match the needs of all users, companies are aggressively integrating design, research and manufacturing efforts with customer experience, branding and marketing. Dealer network is also in integral component of overall experience that has to be taken in the loop to provide better experience to the consumers.

With the ever-increasing smartphone penetration, consumer behavior has undergone rapid changes and it is not just about buying a vehicle anymore. Consumers foresee car buying as an experience and companies are quick to adapt to changing trends. In past, interaction of potential buyers with vehicles was limited to test drives, which now begins months or sometimes years in advance.

Consumers begin the car-buying process by doing online research and speaking to dealers, which gets a boost through technologies such as augmented and virtual reality. This can provide consumers with a real life look and feel of the entire experience of owning a vehicle of their choice. With more consumer devices such as smart-watch, wearable gadgets and virtual reality gears, this trend will become mainstream globally. Consequently, automakers who used to focus on B2B aspects by catering to the needs of the dealers, will divert their attention to B2C aspects as well because the consumer is at the forefront of new age car-buying experience.

Internet of Things (IoT)

Internet of things (IoT) is a term that is used to refer to everyday consumer devices and how these devices communicate with each other and the users via the Internet. Future automobile cockpits will be designed using technology and IoT landscape as communication will become primary requirement of the consumers.

Innovations in IoT will provide significant push to automobile sector as connected cars possessing multiple features are expected to contribute majorly to upcoming technology trends. Such innovations will include consumer-oriented embedded devices such as infotainment, telematics, and digital cluster systems, along with safety and navigation features. Automakers have realized that IoT is capable of pushing automotive systems to become more connected within and outside of the car through the use of software.

In addition to the above, it would be correct to predict that innovations in automobile sector will drive research and development in other sectors, such as aerospace and defense, and vice versa. Innovations across embedded software combined with rich technology expertise will showcase an intersection of these diverse industries, each of which may be driven to extreme heights due to IoT transformation.

An ideal cockpit of a future automobile exploiting IoT innovations would be packaged with essential elements including, an integrated connectivity framework for extending user experience to the IoT devices and landscape, including the cloud; firmware and software management modules that are capable of managing and updating software in real-time; a flexible platform to allow functioning of various services; and, long term support to allow for extensibility over time with evolving IoT developments. It would be needless to state that such systems will have inbuilt security for safe data handling throughout the entire process beginning from the boot up.

Personalised Experience

Another trend that would be commonly observed will be the convergence of other technology areas with cars. For example, users who are savvy about new age innovations in the field of home automation and health wearables would prefer cars with similar capabilities. This would mean connected cars will have data processing capabilities so as to provide a coherent experience to users by connecting smoothly with such gadgets, thereby improving overall IoT landscape. In near future, consumers will expect much more from their vehicles once driverless vehicles are offered to them, including more focus on car safety, creating a more personalized experience behind the wheel, and in-vehicle productivity. Yes, eventually consumers will take work on the road, as a realistically viable option once there exists logical and practical partnerships between connected cars and the automotive, consumer, and enterprise markets.

To concluded, it wouldn’t be wrong to state that cars will be evolved sooner that expected and users would be able to communicate with cars uniformly via wearable devices, smartphones, mobile apps, and the like. It would be normal routine for a user to set navigation, lock doors, turn on the heat, flash the lights, or sound the horn through the wearable or the smartphone and its compatible app.
