  • Abstract: This paper analyses patent applications for methods of electronic business as this analysis is important for firms involved in internet commerce. The contents of WIPO patent applications were examined to see the relationships between the underlying technology of the patent, its business application and the potential markets where these patents were sought. For this, classification schemes for the technology and business application of the patent were developed. We find that there is a distinct relationship between country of origin of the patent, the cluster of countries (i.e., markets) designated in the application as well as the business application and technology of the patent. The cluster of countries designated and its business application and technology type were also related to the type of applicant. Further, the business application of the patent was closely related to its technology. These results have several important implications for patenting strategies of innovators.
