Managing intellectual property (IP) in industry 4.0: IP issues of digital innovations

Anne Mariae Jumadla

With the onset of the fourth industrial revolution, new intellectual property (IP) issues emerge, more adamantly calling for a change in perspective of IP, from a reactive and protectionist stance of a legal enforcement of IP rights, to a more proactive and value extraction-focused position of a strategic management of IP assets. The workshop aims to guide participants into awareness of how their IP portfolios are currently being managed, the issues arising from this in relation to digitalization, and how they might be able to prepare better for Industry 4.0 through a value extraction-focused strategic management of IP assets, to aid their organizations in gaining appropriation advantage.
