Abstract:Intellectual property rights (IPR) protection is a big concern for multinational corporations (MNCs) deciding where to locate their overseas R&D units. The top management team of an MNC must know the techniques of protecting the firm's valuable innovation in a country with weak IPR protection. Unfortunately, few studies in the literature address this topic. A case study of three Taiwanese IT firms that have intensive R&D activities in mainland China, examines the techniques they have adopted to protect their valuable IPR. These techniques encompass legal mechanisms, secrecy, lead time, and complementary capabilities.
