A freedom to operate analysis is a comprehensive account of the margins within which a company is free to operate and of the patents of competitors within the environment of immaterial property rights.

Analyzing the freedom to operate of a company assures the safety of business activities and prevents patent disputes.

A freedom to operate analysis

  • makes an extensive determination of a company’ immaterial freedom to operate in relation to third parties.
  • provides a very specific picture of the patents and protections held by competitors within defined product groups.
  • provides security when moving into marketing areas and aids in the defence of one’s own immaterial rights.
  • prevents unintentional patent infringements and thus extra expenses resulting from these disputes.
  • helps to correctly target product development and resources, for example, into products having wider freedoms to operate.
