Patent Protection as Key to Success

Dr. Patrick Erk, patent attorney and partner of Grünecker, in an article for the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung (FAZ), illustrates how enterprises of any size may profit from patent protection. Patents create values, because they make an enterprise financially more stable and agile. Patent protection keeps competitors from copying technical solutions. Products and methods can be protected strategically, and enterprises may even receive funding, as is shown by Dr. Erk by way of examples.
