Nano drugs, 3 D printing, wireless data transfer, digital TV, wearable electronics, the list goes on.

together with third parties. If a new technology is introduced in the market by more than one company, the chance of financial success is enhanced. The patent professional plays a major part in all these aspects of the new Intellectual Economy. Does a new idea require a patent quickly? Is there a danger that the competition will grab the idea for itself? Or maybe no patent protection is required? Is a technology genuinely novel and inventive?

These are considerations that make an appeal to the technical insight and commercial feeling of the patent professional

Patent Professional a New Profession
Some twenty years ago, companies use to make profit by increasing efficiency of production of its products, nowadays knowledge is the new key to success. Knowledge of technology and its marketing, in the form of patents, trademarks, design patents, and copyrights, determine the worth of a company. This development has given special importance to patent professional in an industry. A meticulous use of intellectual property now plays a crucial part in generating profits. As a patent professional you do much more than merely providing legal protection for new technologies. You are much more closely involved in the business, work with people at CXO level and help company take strategic decisions. Thus you will be confronted with questions such as: what knowledge is of strategic importance? How best to utilize it? What knowledge can be out licensed to competitors? How knowledge can be bought or jointly develop? Buying and selling patents leads to major advantages. Not only does it create income through the sale of rights, but it also generates the possibility of developing new technologies
