Intellectual Property

Market Disruption > Legal and Regulatory Policies

Governments increasingly challenged to balance the protection of intellectual property with the ability to innovate on top of existing content

Illustrative Disruptions

  • IP Laws – Management of intellectual property like patents, trademarks and copyrights
  • International IP – More active participation in international intellectual property frameworks and organizations, such as the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)
  • Innovation vs. Protection – Intensified efforts of balancing innovation, such as the ability to remix content, with IP protection
  • Streamlined Processes – Simplification of patent application processes to ensure faster turnaround and encourage better protection of ideas, designs and other assets
