Freedom To Operate
You take a new product to the market with the confidence that there are no infringement risks. This confidence is essential because the costs related to infringement can be huge.
In many cases FTO searches are only left towards the end of the product development process when an FTO is formally requested. However, this means that the entire risk of possible infringement is carried through until the later development stages. Product managers and R&D engineers may introduce new features and change designs during product development.
There is a need to manage risks along the process, not only at the end.
What if you had had the means to easily understand relevant claims according to the function of your system or organised by subsystems and attributes? What would the value to you of the benefit of making confident decisions and managing risks with minimal effort at each step of the product development process and for the various alternative ideas you have?
We carry our infringement risk analysis and we provide the tools so that product development teams easily and quickly examine infringement risks. The total cost is small, and time to product launch can be shortened because decisions are made confidently and alternative options are easily examined early on as to infringement risks.
