The Importance of Understanding Intellectual Property in Modern Global Business Transactions

Intellectual Properties, otherwise described as the legally protected rights to innovative ideas and creations have long been considered by business experts as the most important engine driving successful business enterprise in the modern global economy. Intellectual Property specifically describes the legal entities and rights involving Copyrights, Trademarks, Patents, Industrial Secrets, and Industrial designs. The definitions and rights involved may vary somewhat from country to country. The international ramifications of Intellectual Property protection and management is an important aspect of international business for writers, producers, inventors, artists, software developers, and investors in these areas.

The acquisition, licensing and commercialization of intellectual property (IP) and associated products is a complicated legal and business process. It entails ensuring the chain of title in the software, the level of protection of the various intellectual property rights in the product within many jurisdictions globally, and numerous options for the licensing, sale, marketing, and commercial or other use of the intellectual property or product. When executed properly these projects are usually extremely complex and require a great deal of sophisticated analysis and work.

The IP commercialization continuum and process involves: Developing a Concept, Funding the Requisite Research, Conducting the Research, Protecting the Involved IP, Marketing for IP Licensing, Negotiating Licenses, Development of a Commercially Marketable Product, Production of the Product, Marketing & Selling the Product, Monitoring IP License Compliance & Product Sales, Systems Accounting, and Prosecuting I.P. Infringements and Breaches of Contract.
