Yours, mine, and ours: the development, management and protection of intellectual property in third sector organisations

Third sector entities must implement effective strategies to meet their objectives and ensure ongoing revenue generating opportunities, and effective IP management is an important aspect of good governance. This article explores the landscape of IP in third sector enterprise, and outlines the risks and challenges in developing and managing IP in the third sector.
