Green Energy Innovation and Intellectual Property Risk - A Changing World
Innovation towards clean energy has been occurring for decades, but now more than ever economies are focusing on it and the pace of innovation is rapidly accelerating.
Governments are being urged to take climate change more seriously and promote clean energy innovation globally. With innovation and competition comes intellectual property filing and IP litigation risk. IP infringement liability insurance is available for clean energy companies to help manage their IP risks. As in any industry, innovators (participants) must properly protect their inventions with intellectual property (IP), including patents, trade secrets (know-how), trademarks, copyrights.
