WIPO Magazine Article Discusses IP Strategies of Spanish Solar Company

August 26th, 2008 by Eric Lane Leave a reply »

The WIPO Magazine recently published an interesting online article about patent strategies in solar technology.  The article profiles Spanish photovoltaic and solar thermal company Isofoton and discusses the company’s IP strategies. 

Based on an interview with the company’s R&D director, Jesus Alonso, the article discusses Isofoton’s patent portfolio, including worldwide prosecution strategies, technology transfer strategies on licensing in and licensing out, and the company’s attitudes on patent enforcement.

In the still limited clean tech IP corpus, this article is one of the best I’ve read.  It demonstrates the importance of IP in clean tech and provides a good illustration of how patent strategy is shaped by a clean tech company’s business goals.
