Patent evasion webinar


Patent evasion webinar

Patent circumvention is legal and helps to escape price wars and competitive pressures. Learn to evaluate patents in a structured manner, to find innovation gaps and to systematically develop circumvention strategies, blocking or equalization strategies. This enables product innovations and possibly your own property rights. The result is to be the first to fill attractive business areas or at least to be able to participate in them. Third-party patents often block access to attractive markets. A license is not possible or too expensive. Despite a supposed “minefield”, patent evasion is often successful in such cases. Our systematic approach to patent evasion has in many cases led to high-performance solutions that have innovative features and were themselves protectable.

Legal patent evasion

Two different goals can be pursued with a patent evasion:

The “smaller” goal of avoiding patents is to be able to use and market one’s own products and processes without restrictions despite existing competition patents. You establish yourself as a second provider on the market, bypassing the competition patent.

The “bigger” goal of patent evasion is a typical product innovation or process innovation. Based on existing product patents or protected processes, innovative, new products and processes with unique selling points are to be developed. Ideally, of course, these are themselves patentable.

Both goals are often part of an overarching patent strategy to ensure freedom of action in one’s own field of competence. This also includes the construction of a patent protection fence.

Procedure for patent evasion

The procedure for patent circumvention presented here has proven itself in practice and is equally suitable for products and processes.

  1. Patent research and determination of the state of the art
  2. Component analysis of the product or process described in the patent
  3. Functional analysis
  4. Feature analysis
  5. Structure of the function-feature matrix
  6. Identification of matrix gaps and possible alternative designs
  7. Generation of ideas and concepts
  8. Evaluation of the concepts
  9. (Patent) research
  10. Risk assessment
  11. Registration of own property rights

Patent Avoidance Methods

Any patent evasion naturally requires a careful evaluation of the existing patents. The basis for this is a classic patent search. In terms of other methods and tools, we use a combination of functional analysis, process analysis, matrix structuring, TRIZ as well as evaluation procedures and elements of risk management. Depending on the task and the patent situation, we select the suitable method elements adapted to the situation and use them to varying degrees.

Objective of the webinar “patent avoidance”

Third-party patents often block access to attractive markets. A license is too expensive or not possible. Despite a supposed “minefield”, patent circumvention is often successful in such cases. Our systematic approach to legal patent evasion has often led to efficient solutions, which in turn were protectable. The procedure can be learned and delivers reproducible results.

Against the background of patent law, you will learn about procedures and suitable methods for legally circumventing patents. You will work with these tools on examples and on your own topics from your environment in order to be able to apply these techniques independently in the future.
