Our experienced speakers will help you to be prepared for FTO challenges when your company or your client wants to introduce new products or enhance existing ones. They will discuss with you best practices for setting up time and cost sensitive FTO searches and drafting effective FTO opinions.

The contents of your online course
  • Essentials of FTO: what it is, when to do it and how much it costs
  • FTO Search: strategies and scope
  • Drafting FTO opinions
  • Taking action: protective letters and more
  • Added value of FTO: reusing the results
  • Evaluating search results: infringement, validity, prior art
The objectives of your online course
In a world of increasingly dense patent thickets, freedom to operate (FTO) is crucial for your company's or your client's market success. Otherwise, potentially high investments in R&D might be wasted if the results cannot be commercialized due to patent barriers. Poorly executed FTO might lead your company or your client directly before a patent court. When properly conducted, FTO helps to identify the need either to design around or to license in.

Our experienced speakers will help you to be prepared for FTO challenges when your company or your client wants to introduce new products or enhance existing ones.

They will discuss with you best practices for setting up time and cost sensitive FTO searches and drafting effective FTO opinions. Furthermore, you will get the opportunity to discover the potential of FTO for market expansion and competitor watching.
Who should attend

You work in an IP, patent or R&D department or as a patent attorney in private practice and are tasked with providing FTO opinions?
Your job is to develop business and you need to watch competition?

Then this online course is intended for you. Knowledge of patent law is required.
