Abstract: A comprehensive Freedom to Operate (FTO) analysis requires analysing all forms of valid intellectual property (IP) rights and associated agreements and contracts to ensure that development or launch of any particular product/process in a particular market, in a particular country does not infringe any IP right of third party. FTO opinion is usually a legal advice; however, R&D organizations engaged in frequent patenting may also need to develop their in-house capability for FTO analysis. This paper illustrates methodology for FTO analysis, limited to patent rights.
