Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The number of patent for fine particle, one of the hottest topics of electrical materials and components, indicates the steady increase. Although Japanese patent still remains the same number as last decade in this field, Chinese patent has been increased rapidly in recent years. IP strategy for electrical materials and components fields is facing the new stages. Advanced IP strategy is tend to cooperative rather than competitive, because recent green related technologies, including new electrical materials and components, put emphasize on sustainable system which require the maximization of the benefit for all participant. This article proposed the new IP usage, IP based consortium, which can avoid the patent infringement case among the consortium members. In addition, IP based consortium can be functioned as the neutral and fairness organization to pool members fee and to distribute dividend to the contributors.
