The original page would extensively talk of 'patenting ideas'. Ideas cannot be protected by a patent (fortunately). Only inventions, ie implementation of ideas can be protected. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 21:24, 29 September 2006

The big table ("The smart people in our field work for us") is literally quoted from: Chesbrough, H. W. (2003). The era of open innovation. MIT Sloan Management Review, 44(3), 35–41.

This source isn't mentioned directly besides the table. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 09:28, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
