What is Intellectual Property?

Intellectual Property (IP) refers to the output of human creativity and innovativeness, which is of particular relevance in the context of the knowledge economy. Intellectual Property Rights (IPRs) legally protect the rights of use of IP and also refer to rights to create wealth from IP. Successful companies, universities, entrepreneurs, investors, charities and social enterprises worldwide count on IP as an integral part of their business strategy.

The role of IP for business

IP is an ‘intangible’ asset, but IP has real and tangible value in the economy, and can therefore be sold, used as security or licensed to generate revenue for owners and licensees. More than 95% of the value of companies like Microsoft, Google, and Apple is based on their IP, and the pharmaceutical and other important industries rely on patents to protect and expand their market shares.
