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.

Data analytics

Opportunities exist for traditional analytics vendors (IBM, SAP), cloud service providers (AWS, Alibaba), system integrators for strengthening external customer relationships and to offer tailored products and services. Challenges include multiple data sources whereby selecting right ones for insights and decisions becomes difficult. As custom solutions grow, it can result in limited integration with broader data services.

Autonomous

Opportunities exist for latest technology sectors including robotics, drones and driverless cars, as most sensor information is collected locally and processed on board, which results in lesser need for remote data storage. Challenges include real-time capabilities and technologies, including computer vision, machine learning etc.

IoT – Applications and Examples

Internet of things have penetrated across multiple industry sectors and IoT applications can be seen in transportation finance, healthcare, retail, industrial automation and even the military. Some of the IoT examples include iBeacon (retail), smart industrial machines by GE, drones with powerful sensors for military applications, etc.

IoT Characteristics

Products embodying internet of things possess certain core characteristics, including, limited user interface (UI), limited processing power, limited bandwidth and limited battery life. Such characteristics provide a perfect combination for IoT applications that demand massive outreach without burdening the infrastructure.

Internet of Things – Legal Aspects

IoT devices and applications cover a diverse range of innovations eligible for creation of intellectual property rights by way of patents. Valuable Iot patent portfolios can be created by focusing on patentable IoT patent inventions, which get approved after preliminary prior art searches and patentability analysis.

Freedom to Operate – Joint Patent Infringement

Innovations can be launched after ensuring that there exists freedom to operate and any third party patent rights will not be infringed. In case of IoT based innovations, scenarios of joint patent infringement may be possible considering the interactive and collaborative nature of the Internet of Things.

While drafting patent claims and writing patent applications for IoT based inventions, quality of IoT patent is crucial for highlighting the inventiveness and novelty of the technology. In use, majority of innovations belong to the field of consumer devices and software. Secondly, IoT patents protecting next generation technological innovations may set industry standards or utilize existing ones, such as, BLE, 6LoWPAN, etc. Since most of inventions in this space are collaborative and interactive, patent owners may face patent enforcement issues.

Valuable IP and Patent Portfolios can be developed to include Internet of Things based innovations, which can be commercialized and monetized by exploiting the evolving nature of IoT.

Data Privacy in IoT applications

Owing to the big data generated by IoT applications and devices, drafting a data collection policy to suit the needs of the business is crucial. Across all stages of IoT, including manufacturing, use, generation and utilization of data, legal issues can arise. Key is to have strong understanding of core products and to engage in strategic counselling for creation and enhancement of IoT.

IoT Patent Lawyers and Patent Attorneys

Technology lawyers and patent attorneys working with clients in IoT sector have to understand their scope of work to cover telecom and consumer protection regulations. A thorough understanding of IoT based businesses is required to advise clients on multiple aspects, including, operations and infrastructure, growth and finance, privacy and cybersecurity regulations, IP disputes, payment systems, and related aspects of disruptive technologies.

IoT innovations are prone to raise ethical issues in collecting million devices, which can easily expand to a billion. Apart from issues pertaining to patent infringement, related issues include data security, data privacy, authentication, data and IP ownership, information governance, product liability programs, confidentiality, industry standards, educational outreach, equipment authorization, tax, custom compliance and legal strategy patent strategy, public policy, government representation, audits, international commercial and technology contracts etc.

Industry wise, IoT is bound to grow multifold in autonomous and e-mobility sectors, thereby requiring multi-tiered supply structure, application of telecom and media regulations, opportunities for information technology (IT) and media companies, cybersecurity in vehicles, payment models in cars, big data in automobiles, etc.
