What exactly is IP Strategy anyway?

By Duncan Bucknell

My working definition of ‘IP Strategy’ is ‘using intellectual property to inform and leverage business strategy’.

I think it covers the full range of activity that is IP Strategy – what do you think?

Here are some definitions previously suggested by others.

Do you have any others we should add?

What are your thoughts?

“A plan or method to use IP to achieve business objectives.” (ipCapital Group article at IPFrontline)

“The central playbook around intellectual property and how it supports the business.” (ipVA)

  1. I use “strategic utilisation of intellectual assets to support and where possible enhance value in a business”
