Intellectual Property Management

Basic approach

Our group appropriately manages and utilizes company assets in accordance with ``Maintaining healthy corporate activities'' in the ``Business Conduct Standards,'' and appropriately manages and utilizes assets such as intellectual property rights, information, and brands. We are working hard to utilize it. We protect our own intellectual property, respect the intellectual property rights of other companies, and promote the creation of strategic intellectual property rights in new development.


artience Co., Ltd.'s Group Intellectual Property Department takes the lead in dealing with regulations, policies, protection, and management regarding intellectual property rights, in collaboration with related departments. In addition, we regularly conduct employee education and awareness activities regarding intellectual property rights at TOYO INK Vocational School and other locations.


Our group recognizes intellectual property rights as an important management resource and is working to create, protect, and utilize intellectual property rights, and is focusing on countering counterfeit products globally. As the procedures for protecting intellectual property rights differ depending on the country, we comply with the laws and regulations of each country and respond appropriately.
