Due to the rapid digitalization, not only of the world of work in the sense of Industry 4.0 and the internet of things (IoT), but of society as a whole, intellectual property has become a precious commodity. The shift from "traditional" products to those that have at least a digital component and are increasingly marketed exclusively on Internet platforms leads to a significantly higher perception of infringing acts. Patent, trademark and design infringement no longer takes place in a dark field, but before the eyes of the world. The relevance of IP management systems is correspondingly high, not only for large-scale industry, but also for small and medium-sized enterprises in particular.
The new German standard DIN 77006 deals with all processes in a company or an organization that are related to intellectual property. It shows users what constitutes quality in IP management and how it can be assured by setting up, developing, implementing, evaluating, maintaining and improving an adequate and effective IP management system.
At Zellentin & Partner, we attach great importance to advising and supporting our clients in setting up IP management systems in accordance with the new DIN 77006, adapted to their individual requirements.
