Dwipo Lubis Baskoro & Partners ("DLBP") has successfully represented the largest boiler maker in the People’s Republic of China, Shanghai Boiler Works, Ltd. ("SBWL") in conducting a freedom to operate search, also known as “infringement search”, before they started trading in Indonesia. This type of search is a very important strategy to avoid the possibility of infringing patent rights in Indonesia and also is essentially a risk assessment exercise, designed to manage the risks associated with exploiting technology that may infringe third party patents. This search is best conducted with a specific product in mind, and it is important to conduct it as early as possible in the product development and distribution process.
