Intellectual Property Strategy to Support Fujitsu's Purpose

Fujitsu's Intellectual Property

Intellectual Property Activities to Support Fujitsu's Purpose

I, Kyoko Izumi, have been serving as Acting Deputy Head of Intellectual Property since my appointment in February 2020. Beginning this fiscal year, the Intellectual Property Unit will promote intellectual property activities that support Fujitsu's purpose, and we will implement a DX-focused intellectual property strategy in order to accelerate Fujitsu's transformation into a DX company.
This website introduces our intellectual property strategy, which supports the realization of Fujitsu's purpose, alongside specific initiatives based on this strategy.
Among the examples of specific initiatives, we will introduce our "efforts to utilize intellectual property for co-creation," such as our partnership with WIPO (the World Intellectual Property Organization) GREEN to achieve the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals); proactive licensing of paid open patents to other companies as technology seeds; and participation in public R&D projects to solve social issues. Next, we will introduce "OSS Legal Compliance," which is an initiative to utilize open source software (OSS), and "international standardization and rulemaking," which is an initiative to formulate social rules that enable society to trust in and securely utilize advanced technology for the benefit of people and the wider world. Finally, we will introduce "Brands & Trademarks / Design & Design Rights," which is a more strategic initiative to transform Fujitsu from an IT company into a DX company. We will also introduce our activities to globally protect our trademark and design rights, which are an important management resource. Please take a look.
