IP Dispute (Trials/Litigations)

The values of intellectual property rights owned by companies cannot be emphasized enough. However, although companies' inventions developed by dedicating considerable time and effort have prodigious significance and importance in a technical or commercial sense, the legal values of the granted patents are not always in proportion to the technical or commercial significance and importance. That is, if the companies fail to properly execute their patent rights or to efficiently defend themselves or attack the other party in legal disputes during the execution of patent rights, the patent rights may become invalid or meaningless.

Patent/Utility Model

The values of intellectual property rights owned by companies cannot be emphasized enough. However, although companies' inventions developed by dedicating considerable time and effort have prodigious significance and importance in a technical or commercial sense, the legal values of the granted patents are not always in proportion to the technical or commercial significance and importance. That is, if the companies fail to properly execute their patent rights or to efficiently defend themselves or attack the other party in legal disputes during the execution of patent rights, the patent rights may become invalid or meaningless.

In contrast, where the companies are alleged to infringe on the other parties' patents, how they take technical or legal defense strategies may completely change the outcome of the lawsuits.
