Commercializing the intellectual property

The concept of commercializing the results of intellectual activity covers a wide range of opportunities to benefit from the use or sale of the results and the disposal of rights to them. These opportunities include the use of the intellectual activity results by producing products, providing services, performing custom research and development, and the transfer of know-how, the assignment of rights, licensing as well as making the results a capital contribution. In comparison with tangible property, there are significantly more opportunities for commercializing intellectual activity results, and due to their intangibility, different countries can dispose of intellectual property rights individually
