The TIPAG FTO analysis (Freedom-To-Operate) as a development and configuration tool shows you, based on your approach, which solutions are freely implementable and in which areas, protective rights already exist.
TIPAG makes suggestions to your Research & Development Team (R&D) on how to:
- If possible, be able to circumvent existing patents.
- Being able to focus on a path that is not yet covered by intellectual property rights so that you can find your own best solution.
Subsequently, TIPAG will accompany you through the
You grant us access to your research projects and your inventions (Invention Disclosures). You may also already know companies that have relevant intellectual property rights. The more we learn from you, the more effectively we can advise you!
We detect granted claims for you and show you the remaining scope for circumventing them.
We will provide you with an overview of which protective rights we have identified and whether they are relevant for you or not. In some cases it might be necessary to pay a license fee for existing patents. In these cases, we support you with suggestions for implementing a meaningful license agreement.
