IP Aspects of remanufacturing. In today’s world with more focus on the impact on the environment from various industries, remanufacturing has become interesting. Remanufacturing is a process when a device is refurbished or upgraded by dismounting of the article and replacement or upgrading of certain parts. Remanufacturing may have a great value for the environment as well as a great business potential, since resources are saved by keeping large portions of a device, which portions are still functional, while replacing or upgrading minor worn out components. Remanufacturing can be made on an industrial scale. From an IP perspective remanufacturing o patented devices is in the borderline between allowed repair and provision of a new article. Further the questions of indirect infringement may have an impact. Nils will give an introduction to the topic and IP aspects associated thereto.
