–MIT Sloan Fellow AJ Huang Expresses Support for the ICTiger Project
By: Dr. Jili Chung, author of Innovation’s Crouching Tiger
Standing on the sidelines is not an option — this was my deepest feeling in 2018 when working on my MIT Sloan fellowship in Boston Cambridge, a city at the forefront of global technological development. Through numerous inspiring, in-depth discussions with industry, government, and academic leaders from thirty countries, I sensed a major trend emerging. This reflection motivated me to share my experiences of working in corporate management, IP, finance, and legal work in China for over 20 years. I crystalized these experiences with a methodology adapted from a famous teaching method pioneered by MIT Sloan School of Management, which became the focus of the book Innovation’s Crouching Tiger.

Recent changes in China’s innovation environment make a big impact on business in Asia.
Recent changes in China’s innovation regime have pushed ASEAN’s IP environment to become an essential component in the global innovation ecosystem. We share three trends in this article: global supply chain relocation, the scramble to transfer IP overseas, and blockchain-powered innovations.
Topic # 3: Legal issues in IP securitization
The legal issues of IP securitization refer to the legal issues arising from the issuance of intellectual property securities based on the traditional asset securitization structure. Since IP assets have different attributes from traditional securitized assets (such as real estate or account receivables), they will generate unique legal risks.
The legal and business community have largely resolved such legal issues. It has been two years since the development of IP securitization in China. The total annual issuance volume has surpassed tens of billions of RMB, which shows that the market has recognized the solutions.
Topic # 2: NFT Securities
When do NFT creations act as a carrier for IP? When NFT-based IPs are divided and exchanged in the market, when will these exchanged NFTs be subject to regulations for securities ? And how will owners and users comply with these regulations?
Topic # 1: The Opportunities and Risks of Transferring IP Overseas
"IP Going Global" (or "IP Going Overseas," an expression most used in China) refers to using intellectual property rights that originated in China to conduct business operations or investment and financing in the global market. Taking and using IP abroad can help to grow the wealth accumulation of the intellectual property rights.
