Safeguard your own rights and monitor those of your competitors
You yourself must ensure that your interests and rights are safeguarded.
When you have a patent, it is important that you keep yourself updated about what patents your competitors are applying for. That way you get the opportunity to oppose any patent which you do not think should be granted. You should also take care so as to not infringe on the rights of other holders of Swedish or European patents. Our online services include many search options which you can use for monitoring.
A lot of technology is published in books, scientific publications and journals. You can get access to both printed and electronic literature through our library.
If you want, you can use PRV's consultancy services, PRV Consulting. They can help you with patent monitoring or branch and competitor analysis. There are also private actors which offer similar services.
