Intellectual Property Rights in the Marine Industry

Danish Society for Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering hosts a mini-conference on the subject of IPR in the Marine Industry on Monday 7 March 2016 from 16.00-20.00 in collaboration with IDA Maritim. Managing Director of OSK Design, Anders Ørgård Hansen, will address some of the issues and challenges of IPR in the marine industry.

The use of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) in the marine industry has gained increased focus during the past couple of years, and production methods such as 3-D printing may further increase the need of a joint industry definition of IPR. Right now, shipyards, owners and designers are struggling with defining, defending and executing their rights and obligations, so in unison, the industry has been developing a set of guidelines taking into account the differences of opinion between yards, owners, designers other and stakeholders. For what happens to the ideas, designs and innovations when ship designers want to protect their ideas, and ship owners want to have all the knowledge and documentation of their ships containing the designs?
