Abstract Dispelling the linear view of intellectual property protection in biotechnology - Intellectual property (IP) and patents are almost synonymous in the biotechnology industry. In this innovation-intensive industry, it is unsurprising that patents are the foremost means of protection, since they provide (at least) 20 years exclusivity. However, a recent seven-year international study challenged the preconception that patenting leads to heightened innovation (International Expert Group on Biotechnology, 2008). The following analysis uses case studies to demonstrate that leading companies take a holistic approach to IP management.
