Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Technology market has been proposed to benefit technology development and increase productivity, and there is a growing interest on technology market in recent years. However, there is little specific guidance documented the link between patent-based measures and patent collateral. Therefore, the purpose of this article attempts to investigate how patent-based measures and patents used as collateral are related. This article employed eight frequently used patent-based measures categorized into three dimensions, i.e., knowledge flow, technological diversity, and legal protection, to analyze which factors increase patent collateral likelihood and patent collateral speed. The results of this article shows that reference count, times cited count, originality index, generality index, claim count, and family size all increase patent collateral likelihood. On the other hand, reference count, nonpatent reference count, originality index, claim count, and family size accelerate patent collateral speed.
