Abstract

The article focuses on how robotics companies can take advantage of Intellectual Property (IP) assets, such as patents, know-how, copyright, brands and designs. Recent IP-related litigations in the field of robotics in Europe (and US) are also highlighted. The paper also analyses whether and to what extent works and inventions produced independently by robots and machines (often, through artificial intelligence tools) can and should be copyright and patent protected.
