Understanding the multiple functions of the patent system

01 December 2015

4iP Council has published a new briefing paper on the multiple functions of the patent system

This eight page paper details, through the use of recent examples, ten different ways businesses can benefit from patents other than by practising them.

Practising the patented invention by manufacturing a technology product is by no means the only way in which patents are useful or valuable and patents can be put to many different and varied uses to promote investment in innovation and achieve return on investment.
