There are different ways or strategies by means of which you can manage the IP of new technological solutions and thus enforce their Industrial Property rights.
Used by inventors and / or companies that continually file patents as a way to protect their inventions.
Used by inventors and / or companies that patent very particular (key) inventions.
Oftentimes, certain firms patent with the purpose of blocking their competitors instead of introducing innovations. It is a way of delaying innovations in a certain direction and benefiting even more from innovations that have been previously introduced in the market.
It consists of combining some of the tools mentioned above, as part of their long-term technological strategy. That is to say, companies that initiate their strategies with systematic patenting and later change their plan (to selective patenting, for example).
