Book a sparring session – protect your business

I understand that it can be challenging to answer questions about intellectual property rights (aka copy-defense tools) and strategic options and risks on your own.

That’s why having a professional guide to help you along the way can make all the difference in achieving your goals.

Learning from others and idearlify® SPARRING sessions are a great way to achieve that without making huge mistakes yourself – or investing in expensive patent attorneys or IP lawyers before you know you understand what they’re saying.

Are you willing to ask questions that lead you to find the correct answers for your business copy-defense?

Your business is essential, and I’m here to support you in growing it and protecting your products against potential threats.

By doing so, you can reap the financial rewards you deserve from the products you have already created. Collaborate with me for solid strategies, protect your ideas, and guide your business toward growth. With idearlify® SPARRING, expand your knowledge at any stage of your journey and safeguard your investments against loss and damage.

Gyde's sparring sessions can help you get unstuck or provide a starting point in what might feel as a chaotic minefield field of rules.

Longer sessions are better for supporting you with practical copy-defense actions, strategies or work - before, during or after you hire a lawyer or advisor.


If you want help with copy-defense planning and sticking to the plan without spending too much or losing motivation, Sparring bundles are perfect for you.

Let's make your intellectual property work as a natural part of your workflows, together!

WHY: Is hiring a patent attorney not enough?

Invest in one or more sparring sessions in good time, before engaging an IP lawyer or patent advisor.

Let me help you prepare what your advisors need to do what you asked for and need, so your advisors' work is well-defined and and pay for what you came for, without extras.

HOW: Are the booking rules for idearlify® SPARRING sessions?

When you book an idearlify® SPARRING single sparring session or bundle, certain rules apply for e.g. when and how to cancel or reschedule.

Please read our Terms & Conditions before using the information offered in the shop or by any other means by PATENTsmarter™.

All Products and Services, Blogs, Mentoring, Tailor-made Solutions, Events, Webinars, Workshops, and more, including any Material or Content shared by PATENTsmarter™, are for educational and illustrative purposes only, aimed at better understanding the law and its potential opportunities and risks, and cannot be construed as legal advice.

Simplification may be necessary to improve the conceptual understanding

The content is not guaranteed to be correct or updated with recent national or international law changes. Sometimes concepts have been simplified to reduce complexity and to ensure a better conceptual understanding, which means that selected topics or aspects may be omitted or not highlighted from all angles.

Use the information – but remember to get professional advice

It is your (the user’s) responsibility as a business owner to ensure that you know the legal consequences of your actions and, thus, also to consult a patent attorney or legal advisor before you act on anything you learned or concluded based on Products, Services, and Content provided by PATENTsmarter™.

Although PATENTsmarter™ can help streamline your work and highlight available opportunities and risks to consider, it cannot replace seeking advice from a patent attorney or legal advisor.

Your specific situation, business model, product details, competitor situation, and behavior are some of the aspects affecting your legal status and may, in some cases, seem to contradict what you learned in, e.g., specific PATENTsmarter™ courses.

Expectations, results, and success

PATENTsmarter™ does not guarantee or promise specific results or outcomes for businesses or individuals participating in or using Products or Services provided via this web page or associated Services.

Your business, your responsibility – remember to seek critical advice before you act

Any person can learn with PATENTsmarter™, but results will vary and depend on case-specific details, understanding of the content presented, the personal effort involved in translating it, and the competence of advisors, as explained above.

If you want my hands-on support as your counsel, this can not be done through PATENTsmarter™. You can reach out to me through my consultancy agreement with Larsen & Birkeholm; however, since this is an entirely independent business, please do not expect discounts or other perks due to the purchase of PATENTsmarter™ products. I only offer a limited number of counseling hours at Larsen & Birkeholm, so you may need to reach out in good time if you would like my case-specific services.

Læs venligst vores Forretningsbetingelser før du bruger de oplysninger, som PATENTsmarter™ tilbyder i shoppen eller på anden måde.

Alle produkter og tjenester, blogs, mentoring (1:1 sparring), skræddersyede løsninger, events, webinarer, workshop m.m., herunder materiale eller indhold, der deles af PATENTsmarter™ , er udelukkende til uddannelsesmæssige og illustrative formål, der har til formål at give en bedre forståelse af loven og dens potentielle muligheder og risici, og kan ikke opfattes som juridisk rådgivning.

En forenkling kan være nødvendig for at forbedre den begrebsmæssige forståelse

Indholdet garanteres ikke for at være korrekt eller opdateret med de seneste nationale eller internationale lovændringer. Nogle gange er begreberne blevet forenklet for at reducere kompleksiteten og sikre en bedre begrebsmæssig forståelse, hvilket betyder, at udvalgte emner eller aspekter kan udelades eller ikke belyses fra alle vinkler.

Brug oplysningerne – men husk at få professionel rådgivning

Det er dit (brugerens) ansvar som virksomhedsejer at sikre, at du kender de juridiske konsekvenser af dine handlinger og derfor også at konsultere en patentadvokat eller juridisk rådgiver, før du handler på baggrund af noget, du har lært eller konkluderet på baggrund af produkter, tjenester og indhold leveret af PATENTsmarter™ .

Selv om PATENTsmarter™ kan hjælpe dig med at strømline dit arbejde og fremhæve muligheder og risici, kan det ikke erstatte rådgivning fra en patentadvokat eller juridisk rådgiver.

Din specifikke situation, forretningsmodel, produktdetaljer, konkurrencesituation og adfærd er nogle af de aspekter, der påvirker din juridiske status, og kan i nogle tilfælde synes at være i modstrid med det, du har lært i f.eks. specifikke PATENTsmarter™.

Forventninger, resultater og succes

PATENTsmarter™ garanterer eller lover ikke specifikke resultater eller resultater for virksomheder eller enkeltpersoner, der deltager i eller bruger produkter eller tjenester, der leveres via denne webside eller tilknyttede tjenester.

Din virksomhed, dit ansvar – husk at søge forretningskritisk rådgivning, før du handler

Alle kan lære med PATENTsmarter™, men resultaterne vil variere og afhænge af sagsspecifikke detaljer, forståelse af det præsenterede indhold, den personlige indsats, der er forbundet med at oversætte det, og rådgivernes kompetence, som forklaret ovenfor.

Hvis du ønsker min praktiske støtte som din rådgiver, kan dette ikke ske gennem PATENTsmarter™. Du kan kontakte mig via min konsulentaftale med Larsen & Birkeholm; men da dette er en helt uafhængig virksomhed, skal du ikke forvente rabatter eller andre fordele som følge af køb af PATENTsmarter™. Jeg tilbyder kun et begrænset antal rådgivningstimer hos Larsen & Birkeholm, så det kan være nødvendigt at kontakte mig i god tid, hvis du ønsker min sagsspecifikke service.
