HELMED SPINE IMPLANTS S.A.
"The Benefits of Patent Protection in a Very Competitive Market": Helmed is aware that its products have been copied at least four times by both Greek and international firms (Germany, France, USA). They do believe that the patent system alone can provide the technology owner with the necessary protection. Copying a competitor’s product is one of the common practices in the medical implant sector.the firm’s executives have changed its IP policy and decided to keep its new product development activities secret and to proceed with patent protection just before the stage of releasing the product on the market.
