Commercial exploitation of IPR in Danish businesses
To what extent do businesses work with the commercial
exploitation of patents, trademarks, designs and utility
In 2010 we posed a number of in-depth questions on the business's commercial exploitation of its IP rights to Danish businesses with patents. Below you can see the statements that the businesses were asked to consider.
Statement 1: IP rights form part of our business strategy.
Statement 2: The business has a strategy for the
purchase, sale and licensing of IP rights.
Statement 3: The business is assessing whether selling or licensing IP rights can create an income for the business.
Statement 4: The business is assessing whether it could pay to buy or license information in the form of IP rights, rather than developing anything new.
Statement 5: The business has procedures for identifying IPR trading partners.
Statement 6: IP rights, which are not used actively or strategically, are sold or licensed, or the business fails to renew them.
