24 Tips for the IP Strategy in ASEAN Insert Date XXXXX 24

25 IP Strategy in ASEAN Applying one global IP plan is a mistake. Identification of IP assets and prioritization of needs Is there IP in your industry? What types of IP fit to your organisation? Different ways of protection Geographical scope of protection Remember about the first-to-file principle Check the freedom to operate Non Disclosure Agreements during negotiations IP Ownership Exploit and enforce your IP rights 25
