In complex technologies,
such as telecommunications, computers, and software, the need for
interoperability and standardisation has created an unprecedented
environment of technical interdependence: no one company owns all
the patents on anything anymore. In complex technologies, patent
rights are fragmented. Nearly every product incorporates hundreds,
or even thousands of patents, owned by dozens of different entities,
some with vastly different business goals. The result is a ghastly
web of intersecting and overlapping patent rights.
Careful product design
can help to lessen these problems, but it is sometimes necessary
to obtain patent rights from others. How this is done can have a
substantial impact on the scope and cost of these licenses. Early
assessment of these costs in the product development cycle can help
to establish a realistic cost basis.

All companies developing emerging technology are
threatened by the prospect of patent licensing royalties Berners-Lee
said. "You could never find out what patent could possibly
apply to what technology," he said. "You could never
guess what things people might have the gall to say they have
patented already. It really is a universal fear."
