As KORDINAT’s patent research service done in the form of a preliminary patent search that allows only relevant patents to be viewed on the subject, it can also be conducted in more detailed form, as a consultancy such as “patent-based technology research”, “technology and competitor analysis”, and so on.More Information
Patent, in general, is a protection certificate given to technological innovations. Most technological innovations are directly related to competition. Companies have to make innovation continuously in order to draw away. This is also applicable to other institutions and people.
In order to eliminate competitive pressure or to create competitive advantage, two methods are generally applied in the world;
- Cost-oriented competition
- Competition with technological superiority
Companies can apply cost-oriented competition in various periods. But if you look the whole of a country, it may not always be the right strategy for every country. For instance, for the companies in Turkey, a cost-oriented competition strategy is not appropriate. Tax rates, energy rates, raw material and financial costs are very high. Even if all this is left aside, it is not possible for labor costs in Turkey to compete with labor costs of countries such as China, India, Vietnam and Bangladesh. Consequently, in this case, if exceptions are set aside, companies of Turkey do not have a chance rather than choosing technological superiority based competition.
Technological race in the world depends on making an innovation in a product, production method or service even if small or large and adopting these innovations, especially patents.
What industry generally understands when it comes to patent is “Making a world-shaking invention”. However, the patent is a protection certificate given to inventions, innovations that are new, applicable to industry and familiar to the state of the art. Patent, in the most general expression, is a privilege granted by the state to innovators. As the definition suggests, the patent is not only granted to the world-shaking inventions, but if there is an innovation that provides a technical advantage made by the manufacturing or servicer, this is likely to get patent.
According to the European Patent Institution (EPI), more than 1,000,000 patent applications are filed annually in the world. This means that millions of patentable inventions are made in the world, however, a part of this is filed for patent.
Companies make innovation and if they treat patent as a procedural matter only, maybe they get a patent or utility model registration certificate. Unless looking patent from a different standpoint, patent is nothing more than expense.
KORDINAT, while providing patent attorneyship services to companies, it examines and understands the innovations they make in detail and proposes appropriate patent strategies for these innovations to be successful in the market. Prepared patent files are organized by considering patent attack, defense, and license leasing, etc. strategies to be used later. Kordinat provides these services by patent attorneys with experienced engineer origin.
