Technology-based coopetition and intellectual property management: The case of post-divestiture coopetition
Kapitel i bok, 2017

This chapter introduces intellectual property (IP) management in technology-based coopetition. It includes a general description of the role for IP management in competition and collaboration, as well as a framework for classifying IP relevant to coopetition. Based on this framework, IP agreements are shaped to combine the logics of competition and collaboration in coopetition. A key point is that knowledge, technology, and IP can be protected to enable controlled sharing through licensing in coopetition. The chapter also introduces the concept of post-divestiture coopetition, in which IP management is critical, and exemplifies it with two cases from the automotive industry.
