Telecoms and IT encompasses myriad innovations, as well as a very wide range of approaches to innovation and intellectual property; Internet companies, for example, typically innovate at a much higher rate, and more radically, than companies in the telecoms industry (where rules and standardisation are prevalent).
Increasing convergence between telecoms and the internet, as well as the emergence of new fields within Telecoms and IT such as Telehealth—a convergence sector, developing within the overlap of the medical devices industry and telecommunications industry—is now resulting in cultural confusion, standardisation challenges and the emergence of technology areas that are densely populated by patents referring to a similar technology domain (so called ‘patent thickets’).
