Guidelines on the Best Licensing Practices of Collective Management Organisations (CMOs) to MSMEs

Collective management organizations (CMOs) are a crucial part of the supply chain of the entertainment, creative, and business industries that cover all audio and video works. With the advancement of digital technologies, it has become even more important for CMOs to establish an efficient and accessible licensing model and bring down licensing costs when authorizing to MSMEs, thereby improving the effectiveness of goods and services while creating new values in the industrial sector, which would be a crucial element to boost industrial growth.

Chinese Taipei proposes the "Guidelines on the Best Licensing Practices of Collective Management Organizations (CMOs) to MSMEs" project. By sending out a questionnaire to all APEC economies, carrying out analysis, conducting in-depth follow-up interviews with chosen economies with successful licensing models, and holding workshop, Chinese Taipei intends to compile and publish a booklet on the best licensing practices of CMOs to MSMEs, which can serve as a highly practical and effective reference tool for CMOs, licensing practitioners, and government agencies in the APEC region.

Global SME and Corporate Innovation Survey 2017

Both SMEs and large corporations are being disrupted by radical changing business models and digital transformation. Corporate innovation instruments become extremely critical for corporations to stay competitive. However, many SMEs don't have sufficient R&D budgets to invest in innovation. The concept of "Open Innovation" - working with innovative startups "MSMEs" - is one way to mitigate and overcome this deficiency. However, studies show that around 70% - 90% of all innovative MSME integrations with corporations failed. Now more than ever, success in corporate innovation is linked to successful integration of MSMEs / startups into APEC-based SMEs and corporations.
