The management of intellectual property by Derek L Bosworth( Book )

The economics of intangible investment by Elizabeth Webster( Book )
8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 185 libraries worldwide
This innovative book sheds new light on the emerging confluence between labour and industrial economics: the view that labour-as-capital is the dominant factor of production. This factor is commonly embraced under the term intangible capital. This book examines the process by which firms accumulate intangible capital assets using a post-Keynesian perspective. It will be of interest to labour and industrial economists, especially those who favour post-Keynesian and Kaleckian economic thought

Patterns of trademarking activity in Australia by Paul H Jensen( Book )
2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
Over the past quarter of a century, trade mark applications have grown by 2.3 per cent per annum faster than real GDP in Australia. This paper explores the factors associated with this growth. The authors find some evidence that over the past two decades, trademarking has been associated with more inventive companies, the growth of the services sector, globalisation and industry based microeconomic reforms. There is provisional evidence that higher levels of real income per capita have supported some of these factors
SMEs and their use of intellectual property rights in Australia by Paul H Jensen( Book )
3 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 10 libraries worldwide
There is a common, largely anecdotally based belief that registered intellectual property is a less efficient form of protection for SME inventors compared with inventors from large firms. This paper discusses the reasons why SMEs may be disadvantaged in their use of intellectual property, as opposed to more general disadvantages they may incur over the whole course of innovation. It estimates patent and trade mark rates per employee in Australia, but does not find a significant difference between the large firm and SME sectors once industry effects are taken into account

Measuring intangible investment by L. C Hunter( Book )
2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Recent years have seen a growth in the literature on a variety of aspects of intagible property investment, the complement of the more familiar investment in tangible assets, such as buildings, plant, and equipment. For economic and business analysts, this change in emphasis neccesitates the selection of a meaningful metric for intangible investment and the firm's total capital stock of tangible and intangible assets, which is not provided by conventional accounting systems. This gives rise to a deficiency of information for two principal audiences: shareholders and external stakeholders in the firm, and the internal management of the firm. Information to know and understand the level of returns on past investments, and to form expectations about future investments, their returns and risk profile, is accordingly missing. This paper builds on recent studies focusing on this problem to (1) characterise the nature and implications of the information deficiency; and (2) develop an intangible metric that illustrates what can be achieved with suitable accounting data

Low-quality patents in the eye of the beholder evidence from multiple examiners by Gaétan de Rassenfosse( file )
2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Low-quality patents are of considerable concern to businesses operating in patent-dense markets. There are two pathways by which low-quality patents may be issued: the patent office may apply systematically a standard that is too lenient (low inventive step threshold); or the patent office may grant patents that are, in fact, below its own threshold (so-called 'weak' patents). This paper uses novel data from inventions that have been examined at the five largest patent offices and an explicit model of the grant process to derive first-of-their-kind office-specific estimates of the height of the inventive step threshold and the prevalence of weak patents. The empirical analysis is based on patent applications granted at one office but refused at another office. We estimate that the fraction of patent grants associated with a patent standard that is lower than that of other countries ranges from 2-15%, with Japan having the tightest standard and the United States and China the loosest. The fraction of grants that are inconsistent with the office's own standard ranges from 2-6 per cent. The fraction of grants that are inconsistent in this sense is generally higher in newer fields such as software and biotechnology, and lower in traditional fields such as mechanical engineering. Our estimates of invalidity are much lower than those that have been derived from litigation studies, consistent with litigated patents being highly non-representative of the population
