Intellectual Property (IP) and innovation are key management issues for today's enterprise. This timely book combines research on SMEs, IP and innovation. Drawing on original material from the ESRC's Programme on Intellectual Property, and showing a variety of approaches to the study of IP in small firms, this book reveals that IP and innovation management are interdisciplinary areas of research. These chapters provide new evidence on IP management in specific sectors such as software, engineering, textiles, biotechnology and electronic publishing. Some also address the strategic management of IP and examine IP management in the case of University spin-offs, while others focus on the role of patents in protection and innovation. The first major collected edition on IP and innovation management in SMEs, this book will be of interest to students, policy-makers and practitioners interested in IP and innovation.
