INNOVATION

PROTECTION OF INNOVATION

Technological innovation is a strategic and economic resource whose preservation is often a complex process. The presence of strong operators, not-entirely-regulated competition in major emerging economies, the intangible essence of the products and the ease with which technological assets can be reproduced or copied are the main obstacles to the defence of the property rights of companies whose success lies in their innovation.
