Public intellectual: Federal programs to boost R&D spending are supporting industry revenue

The Intellectual Property Leasing industry plays a vital role in the Australian economy. Operators lease their intellectual property, such as patents, trademarks, spectrum and other intangible property, to businesses in exchange for royalties or licensing fees. Businesses then use the intellectual property to create a range of products and services. The industry's largest market is manufacturing firms, such as chemical and pharmaceutical manufacturers, that lease patents and other intellectual property on new medicines and other chemical products to avoid the costs associated with research and development (R&D). Telecommunications firms are also a notable market, as these firms lease spectrum to provide their consumers with wireless communication more.
