Interpreting an FTO-inspired Landscape

To successfully commercialize a product or service, it’s imperative you understand what the freedom to operate (FTO) landscape looks like. This will guide your decision making, and help you determine whether your idea infringes on another party’s intellectual property rights.  

However, interpreting an FTO landscape can be confusing, especially if you don’t know what to look for. 

Fortunately, we’ve got you covered! Join us on December 13th at 3pm GMT for an interactive FTO landscape discussion.  

In this one-hour webinar, you’ll learn how to: 

  • Run a risk-based FTO analysis  
  • Create a landscape and extract meaningful insights  
  • Conduct a product development analysis & more! 

We’ll conclude with a quick Q&A, so come prepared with your questions.

 Spaces are limited and available on a first come, first serve basis. Reserve your spot today!
