This paper aims to evaluate the value of internationalized inventive activities by analyzing characteristics of patent inventions based on international collaboration, and unveil how degree of internationalization and patent characteristics can be correlated to each other. To obtain the objective of this study, a total of 4,667,855 USPTO utility patents by USPTO between 1976 and 2013 are downloaded and characterized, and subsequently the number of inventor countries as well as the number of assignee countries are compared with selected 15 patent characteristics such as Family Size, Number of Patent Reference, Number of Patent Citation Received, Number of Non-Patent Reference, Number of Claim, etc. The degree of internationalization is depend on the number of inventor countries as well as the number of assignee countries. The results show 457,296 Inventor-Assignee international patents, 188,588 Inventor international patents and 28,644 Assignee international patents granted. In addition, the degree of internationalization and patent characteristics including patent family sizes, Number of Patent Reference, Number of Claim can be confirmed and therefore the value of international R&D can be more quantitatively evaluated. This paper not only finds out that the patent characteristics of international patents are significantly different with non-international patent, but also shows higher degree of patent internationalization implies that more patent values in term of patent characteristics.

本研究藉由分析發明專利之專利特徵致力於評估國際化發明活動的價值,並以此分析國際化合作及討論不同程度的國際化和專利特徵之間的關係會如何交互影響。 為了獲得客觀性,分析專利下載於1976年到2013年間美國專利資料庫核准的4,667,855件發明專利並將以特徵化,其中連續的發明人國家數量以及所有權人國家數量被用來和選定的15項專利特徵比較,像是專利家族大小、引用專利次數、被引用專利次數、引用非專利文獻次數、權利範圍等。不同程度的國際化是基於發明人國家數量以及所有權人國家數量。研究結果表示有457,296件發明人-所有權人國際化專利,188,588件發明人國際化專利,28,644件所有權人國際化專利。此外,不同程度的國際化和專利特徵包含專利家族大小、專利引用次數、權利範圍的關係可以被確定,因此國際化發明活動的價值可以被量化評估。本研究不僅發現國際化專利之專利特徵和非國際化專利之專利特徵顯著不同,並且指出越高程度的國際化展現越高的價值就專利特徵而言。
