IP Protection for Blockchain

Since Satoshi Nakamoto’s white paper was published in 2008, the uses for blockchain technology have exploded into a diverse range of subject areas rich with ideas and innovation — and this shows no signs of slowing down.

Smart contracts which control, maintain and transfer ownership of real-world assets can be automatically executed. Decentralised rewards can be earned by solar energy producers. The Internet of Things ecosystem is extending to direct communication between smart devices. The versatility and decentralised nature of blockchain technology is being constantly demonstrated, and its set of new and innovative use cases will only expand further.

Our specialist blockchain practice has filed and prosecuted hundreds of patent applications relating to blockchain technology worldwide, so we’re well-placed to help you identify and protect your blockchain-related inventions.
