Kurzfassung


Forschung zum Thema geistiges Eigentum (IP) geht im Allgemeinen von zwei Annahmen aus. Zum einen ist dies die Annahme, dass Streitfälle in Sachen IP zu Gericht gebracht werden können, wo gerecht entschieden wird. Zum anderen ist dies die Annahme, dass Unternehmen über ausreichend Ressourcen verfügen, um ihre Rechte durchzusetzen. Diese Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit Situationen, in denen eine dieser beiden Annahmen nicht zutrifft.

Kurzfassung (englisch)


Research on intellectual property (IP) management usually starts with two assumptions. Firstly, the assumption that IP rights can be taken to court and that a court will make a fair and comprehensible decision. And secondly, the assumption that firms have the necessary funds to take legal actions regarding their IP. This dissertation is a compendium of five individual articles that consider settings where one of the two assumptions does not hold.
The first article introduces IP, explains why it is such a contentious topic, and reviews recent relevant literature. Furthermore, does the first article provide a superstructure for the following four articles.
The second article considers Swiss life science Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SME) and their approach towards IP. This article analyses different SME's approaches toward IP to derive distinct underlying constructs that affect these firms' decision-making processes.
The third article concerns international new ventures (INVs). These firms internationalize early on and are therefore exposed to multiple IP regimes. Being small and active in several countries makes it especially difficult for INVs to profit from innovation. The article shows how INVs craft novel IP protection strategies that have not been previously reported in the literature.
The fourth article discusses IP in China. Theory predicts that firms should appropriate rents from innovation with informal protection measures and not by patents. However, for the last decade patent applications of foreign firms in China have been growing exponentially. This article aims to explain why China has defied theoretical predictions.
And lastly, the fifth article explores how SME can ensure that their innovations are worthwhile. This article causally pinpoints the presence of firm-level appropriation capabilities to the firms' organizational characteristics.
Ultimately this dissertation provides insights on how firms deal with appropriation in specific hitherto neglected settings.
