Intangible property could be the most valuable property in many research organizations and businesses. The control of this crucial intellectual property requires the obtaining of effective and cost-efficient protection. Cultural industries, technology and telecommunications are important to the nation's economic growth and health. To ensure continued economic success, companies must have a well-developed intellectual property plan.
As the trend to protect research results before public dissemination grows, access to the rights of others through licensing-in or cross-licensing is a primary concern. Therefore, flexibility in an intellectual property position could serve the dual purpose of providing an asset and securing a niche in order to create opportunities for extra revenue flow through licensing. A start-up or research-oriented organization could attain substantial advantages by combining intellectual property assets through cross-licensing with those of a large worldwide business.
