Brand Protection Strategy

 ANTI-COUNTERFEITING SERVICES 


ITALYPATENT offers business methods, strategies and technologies to defend companies products from counterfeiting, piracy and unfair competition attacks.

 

CONTROL SYSTEMS to assess compliance with the law of trademarks and products.

Both in Italy and worldwide there is a proliferation of trademarks associated to specific regulations or production guidelines set up by official authorities which not always have the necessary in-house resources to control dealers in order to assess whether there are abuses and check the protection offered by trademarks.

SYSTEMATIC AUDITING We audit the correct use of licensed trademarks through effective checks and without altering the primary relationship of mutual partnership. The compliance with the contractual agreement and the use of the licensed trademark is a must-have condition not to betray consumer expectations, as well as to safeguard products and its image against damages.

SCREENING OF TRADEMARKS AND LICENCES Through the extensive use of databases, Internet and market screening, it is possible to assess how to present and sell a product without making acts of counterfeiting and/or unfair competition which can damage your trademark. It is therefore possible to obtain a safe and evidentiary documentation in order to apply effective protection strategies aimed at removing damages and restoring the conditions of fair competition.

 

ANTI-COUNTERFEITING TECHNOLOGIES 

 

Defence technologies have evolved together with plagiarism capabilities. For an effective fight against the counterfeiting phenomenon,  ITALYPATENT recommends systems and technologies which can be applied easily and successfully. These technologies are also compatible with actual production processes in order to better use and accept them, by enabling to carry out checks in open systems.

We address the concerns of unaware victims, who believe to buy branded products through regular distribution channels, but instead they buy a counterfeit product or an imitation marketed through parallel channels. This last type of trademark attacks is the most powerful one that trademarks proprietors have to fight.

The negative influence of such a phenomenon can have an impact on:

• both company profits and its reputation (lower sales, profits and investments)

• consumer safety, particularly in the food, pharmaceutical and automotive fields, where

counterfeiting can have lethal effects.

 

The longer the production and distribution chain, the weaker it becomes. In fact, it can be easily attacked by counterfeiters or by whoever imports or exports products throughout illegal channels.

Likewise, pricing differentiation too, which is typical aspect of globalization, favours the selling of  products with the same brand, in different places and at different prices. On the other hand, it offers parallel importers the opportunity to fit in the production and distribution chain, by purchasing cheaper products in a country to sell them elsewhere. This allows them to make bigger profits that otherwise would go to the producer.

There are countless authentication technologies, and every day new technologies are born: each of them has advantages and disadvantages:

• Chemical or biochemical markers which are put onto products, invisible to the public, can be identified and recognized.

•  Holograms, used together with other technologies

•  Safety ink and pigments, safe printing techniques such as micro-text and anti-copying devices

  •  Numbering and code assignment methods which allow to rebuild a product pipeline along with the supply and distribution chain of the product.

•  RFID (radio frequency identification, or identification through radiofrequencies or "intelligent labels").

 

For each problem we have to find the right solution. Modern RFID technologies - together with a telephone line - can make anything yesterday in fighting the counterfeiting problem or even genuine goods within regular distribution sell channels, which are got caught short of the necessary authorization because they come from parallel markets.

ITALYPATENT has prepared an easy and safe system in order to assure consumers, but resellers, that their bought products are original and come from regular trading channels.

 

Italypatent  develop and Implement a cost-effective Brand Protection Strategy.

 
As new products are developed, you must immediately begin  thinking about anti-counterfeiting exposure and strategies. 

You must identify and understand past and current examples of where bad guys actually launched their products in the market  before the innovator.   

The advent of new products and technologies created counterfeiting opportunities  . 
 

 

Pre-launch surveillance program 

Compodynamic  will identify strategies best suited to offset the possibilities of unauthorized counterfeits  before the innovative products launch.

•  Have you created a comprehensive and holistic training and
awareness program for customs officials and law enforcement authorities throughout the world prior to launch ?

• Do you know and understand the direction counterfeiters
are trending?

• Do you have a robust and proactive pre-launch surveillance
program?

• Do you have a sophisticated online monitoring program that
accomplishes your goals and objectives?

• Have you identified and included innovative anticounterfeiting
packaging solutions?

• Have you benchmarked with industry colleagues vs. solution
providers?

TECHNOLOGIES TRANSFER AGREEMENT

 

The drawing up of a technology transfer licensing agreement (patents transfer) needs qualified and  multidisciplinary skills because of its countless modalities. 

Experts dealing with licensing agreements must have good scientific and technical knowledge in order to allow them to understand correctly the technologies to be transferred, their quality level and state of obsolescence, as well as the R&D methodologies involved. An in-depth legal knowledge of trademarks and licences and, of course, of the processes involved in technologies transfer is also required. In order to properly manage contractual negotiation, especially when it embraces partnership, co-operation and collaboration agreements, it is necessary to master marketing techniques. In fact, technologies transfer agreements can also include - beyond the elements of a licence contract - references to different contracts. For example, they can include partnership agreements, settlement systems for services or supplied machines and research co­operation for further technology developments, etc.,.

 

In technology transactions, the licensor can have different kinds of relationship with the licensee. In effect, he can not only acts as a licensor, but also as a supplier of a large range of products and services, and even as a partner of the joint-venture.

ITALYPATENT  makes available the appropriate skills - a licensing expert - for setting up properly any aspect linked to a licence contract.

ECONOMIC EVALUATION OF PATENTS AND TRADEMARKS 

In all those cases where transfers or acquisitions of trademarks and patents rights are applicable, or when investing large sums for developing and industrialising a given technology, it is crucial to know exactly the economic value of the exclusive right you are about to transfer, buy or industrialise.

To assess the economic value of a patent or of a trademark, we use adequate evaluation methods which are recognised in the real world and applied extensively with few changes all over the world.

Of course, the economic value of a licence or a trademark is always related to its ability to generate profits or benefits, which are also meant as a deterrence or a defence means. 

As a result,  ITALYPATENT treats, each trademark or patent, separately, by analysing all its aspects and also evaluating its real or potential value. 

 ITALYPATENT offers its expertise in this field, both to single inventors and companies of any size, at very affordable prices.
