Making Patents Work for You

Date: 13th June 2023
Location: Webinar

Webinar

This STC webinar was delivered in partnership with Dolleymores, supported by Hexagon, to share details about a a major change to the European Patent system coming into effect on 1 June 2023. The Unitary Patent System and Unified Patent Court could lead to much cheaper cost of obtaining and maintaining patents covering a range of countries in the EU, and a streamlined cost-effective litigation system.

The Patent Box tax regime has been in existence for a while, in which profits made worldwide on sales or licensing of products or processes incorporating patented technology are taxed at a low rate, but is of significantly greater potential benefit now with increased corporation tax rates.

The webinar showed how this system can be used effectively and speedily, even for developments in your technology that you may not view as particularly revolutionary. Our speakers examined the pros and cons of these, and how they can help you to protect your inventions cost-effectively and maximise the benefit of your Intellectual Property (IP).

Finally, there was a brief refresher overview of the various ways of protecting your IP. You can watch the webinar below.
