Study on the changing role of Intellectual Property in the semiconductor industry – including non-practicing entities
A study has been carried out for the European Commission on the changing role of Intellectual Property (IP) in the semiconductor industry. The study builds on the results of a limited series of interviews and the response to a questionnaire distributed amongst a wider group of actors in the value chain. The analysis confirms that IP is very important within the value chain.
