The threat of patent infringement to businesses is perhaps better known in industries such as pharmaceuticals, engineering and manufacturing. However, in the User Experience (UX) field there are potential issues around patent infringement that, as practitioners, we need to be aware of. This session (originally a discussion held at UX Cambridge 2014) aimed to increase awareness and start a discussion amongst UX professionals regarding intellectual property issues that may impact our work.
The session was an open discussion, where participants shared their experiences and concerns and posed questions for further exploration. The outcome was a sketchnote (https://www.flickr.com/photos/97823772@N02/15058945187/in/set-72157647610886191) which summarised the discussion.
