Intellectual property (IP) rights are completely worthless if they are not aligned with a company’s commercially relevant goals. Many companies are aware of the importance of IP rights. Thus, IP is now used not only to protect against imitation, but also as an attractive means to increase the value of a company. It is important here that the IP portfolio is aligned with the company’s orientation. What should I pay attention to in my IP strategy? How can I best adapt this strategy?
