A Guide to Intellectual Property for Meat Researchers

It allows the outputs of research work to be owned in the same manner as physical property and protects it from infringement or copying. IP can be bought and sold like any form of property, and can also be rented out by the process of licensing, resulting in significant commercial and financial benefits for individuals, research groups and the organisation employing them.
