IP monitoring

If you want to be prepared for changes in an increasingly volatile  market, you should continuously monitor the IP activity of your competitors

We understand the importance of knowing your competitors

At HØIBERG, we understand the importance of keeping a watchful eye on your competitors’ IP activity. We offer our assistance in identifying any potential conflicts between their patent rights and your commercial activities, giving you ample time to factor them into your business strategy.

Monitoring your competitors’ patents also help you determine whether their products infringe upon your own patent rights. Depending on your goals, we can work with you to pursue licensing agreements or legal action.

In addition, patent surveillance will inform you of new technologies well before they hit the market.

Why should you monitor the patent activity within your field of interest?​

Do you know if you are infringing other people’s patent rights?

Do you know your competitors - as well as they know you?

Do you know in which direction your commercial field is heading?

If you do not know the answers to the questions below, you should consider monitoring the IP activities within your area of expertise or commercial relevance.

Monitor your competitors' IP activity worldwide

With new patent applications, trademarks, and designs being published constantly and in increasing numbers, we can monitor your competitors’ IP activity worldwide or in specific regions or countries of interest. We will align the frequency of monitoring and the level of involvement to your needs.

If we identify conflicts between your interests and your competitors’ IP activity, we will formulate the best course of action according to your business strategy.
