Broadly the primary aim of patent owners, licensing is the mechanism for making a return on the substantial investment of resources that goes into innovation. For smaller business which lack the resources to mass produce a product based on their intellectual property, licensing might be the only sensible route available initially. Larger businesses on the other hand, might retain the exclusive right to manufacture the products in the country where they are located, and grant licences to do so further afield.
