Air & Water
Current advancements in aircraft construction and in shipbuilding are commonly driven by an ever higher percentage of primary energy costs going toward their required fuels, not to mention stricter environmental standards. These same motivations also give rise to completely new concepts in transforming air and maritime mobility. Such innovative market environments make it particularly hard to avoid encroaching on property rights. Especially in the case of ocean-going vessels, innovators also need to pay special attention to protecting their technology in the home market of their competitors because patent protection does not fully provide for maritime vessels entering into domestic ports.
