Ecommerce has experienced explosive growth this decade, with the arrival of many disruptive and innovative ideas.
It’s a common belief that patents cannot be used to protect innovations in the ecommerce field due to the perception that they’re classed as business methods. However, many patents granted relate to the technologies that bring online shopping experiences to life, improve payment processes and enhance protection against fraud. A successful IP strategy in the ecommerce sector is founded upon understanding the limits of achievable patent protection.
Meanwhile, the trailblazing FinTech industry is driving considerable developments in the app space. Integration, amalgamation of services and open data are all driving innovation, allowing challenger brands with smart IP strategies to leverage an amalgamation of patents, designs and trade marks to secure a commercial edge.
