to create patent fences
pour se protéger efficacement

"to create patent fences" >> litterally "pour créer des brevets barrières"

- http://www.basse-normandie.cci.fr/innover_proteger/innovatio... :
"[...] le brevet reste la seule barrière protectrice permettant d'éviter la dérive des marges et donc de la rentabilité [...]"

- Here, the idea of "to create patent fences" would be put as follows in French : "pour se protéger efficacement".

The French language always focuses on the results rather than on the means of doing something.
