Manufacturing and industrial companies face the challenge of having to transform their material and engineering know how into high tech products driven by new technologies. The Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 mean not only inventing and producing new goods, but also digitising and globalising the entire supply chain. These complexities and technological advances, coupled with an economy that changes rapidly and constantly, have led to technical, commercial and legal issues of a brand new kind.
