Patents as a proxy for innovation
There is a strong link between innovations, patents and technologies. Innovations are the commercialization of inventions, i.e. novel technological solutions. To allow for their appropriation, intellectual property regimes such as patents, copyrights, trademarks, and trade secrets are used to protect different parts of firms’ proprietary knowledge. Herein, patents serve as temporary exclusive rights that allow their owners to exclude others from making, buying, or selling products and services that base on the patent-protected inventions.
Further, patents are the predominant intellectual property right, as they protect functions and studies show that about 80 percent of all inventions are patent protected.
