This Article aims to explore the securitization of intellectual property [hereinafter “IP”], introducing the promise of said financing method in the growing field of IP. In recent years, IP has become a major component of developed economics. Raising funds for research, development, and the creation of new inventions and works of authorship has never been an easy task. This Article, therefore, presents a review of securitization in the field of IP and in doing so makes a few major contributions. It offers a thorough discussion of securitization, its benefits, and its prominence over more traditional methods of financing, such as bank lending, issuance of corporate bonds, and venture capital funding. Next, it offers an account of the current use and scope of securitization in relation to IP assets such as trademarks, copyrights, and patents. The Article also considers the benefits and challenges of securitizing IP and suggests preliminary solutions to these challenges.
