IP Type

Updated Apr 19, 2012   //   Reference

The IP Type determines what Operations make sense for each Family and Right of that IP Type.

Examples of IP Types are:

  • Inventions
  • External Inventions

The available IP Types for a Portfolio can by viewed by going to Settings -> Actions Settings.

Internal vs. External IP

IP can be either Internal or External.

Internal IP is owned or managed by the Portfolio owner, while External IP is owned or managed by someone else. For example the activity of drafting an application doesn’t make sense for External IP – you’re not going to be doing that.
