In particular, she guided listeners through the unique requirements and pitfalls of patenting inventions that have roots in "traditional knowledge" with the apparent contradictions inherent therein. She concluded by stressing that those companies that are active in the traditional medicine field should have a clear strategy on how to extract value from all forms of intellectual property, including branding and trade secret protection.
