This volume reviews the publicly available sources of statistical information on intellectual property rights, looking principally at patents, designs, royalties and inventions. The book examines the criteria against which intellectual property is measured, discussing the definitions of 'inventive activity' and 'applied research'; the differences between 'inventiveness' and 'creativity'; the meaning of originality; and the distinctions between scientific originality, industrial inventiveness and business acumen. A valuable source of information for researchers and professionals in the field.
