Daikin’s new approach to IP deal-making

Pin It
Last month, Japanese aircon giant, Daikin, became the latest Japanese
company to open up a portfolio of patents for royalty-free licensing.
The decision builds on years of similar patent initiatives by the
company. Daikin has made other royalty-free pledges focused on
emerging economies in the past, and it bet big on a technology transfer to China 12 years ago that helped supercharge its business.
It’s a great example of a firm that creates value from patents despite
not being litigious. And it shows that industry giants like Toyota and
Tesla, each of which have made similar pledges, are by no means the
only tech companies experimenting with this model.
Could this lead the way for a new IP deal-making structure? Will it deliver positive outcomes? 
One particular session at IPBC Asia will delve deeper into these new
approaches to IP-based transactions. A panel of leading international IP strategists will share their views on how new deal structures can
deliver positive outcomes to all sides in a negotiation.
