As leading Korean firms are shifting from an imitator to an innovator strategy, this chapter shows that their overseas patents have also grown rapidly. Using worldwide filings of Korean patents the chapter analyzes the patenting strategies of Korean organizations focusing on their filings in Asian countries and, in particular, in China. The sheer number of filings by Koreans exceeded most advanced economies. Korean firms have been writing and filing patents and strategically selecting where to patent. What is remarkable is the high share of worldwide patenting strategy by Korean organizations in China, which is second after the US in terms of its destination of patent filing by all Korean patent families. The chapter provides an analysis on the characteristics and firm-level patterns of patent strategies of Korean organizations focusing on their filings in China.

Keywords:   Korean patents, filing strategy, innovator strategy, patenting strategies, China, number of filings
