Be up to date with your strategic foresight
As your competitors can put your patents under surveillance, it is important that you do the same! Keeping up to date with the activities of your potential competitors in France and abroad is a fundamental practice!
Indeed, it allows you to identify the risks and opportunities for your activity. If you notice that one of your competitors has just obtained a patent in France or in Europe, it may be wise to evaluate with YesMyPatent the possibility to oppose this patent in order to try to limit the negative or blocking effects that this patent could have on your business.
A competitor’s patent granted in France or in Europe can allow him to obtain exclusive rights on a part or the totality of your activity, making you therefore guilty of counterfeit if you continue the exploitation. You risk significant damages and the outright prohibition of exploitation by a court!
