IP

IP

(1) (Internet Protocol) The communications technology used worldwide in local networks, wide area networks and the Internet. The IP is the network layer in the TCP/IP protocol suite, which is used to route packets from one network to another (for details, see TCP/IP). See Internet Protocol and IP network.

(2) (Internet Protocol address) The numeric address assigned to every laptop and desktop computer, server, router, smartphone and tablet in an IP network. The phrase "what's the IP?" means "what is the IP address currently assigned to the device?" See IP address.

(3) (Intellectual Property) The proprietary assets of an organization. In the computer field, hardware circuits, software and text are copyrightable. Depending on the situation, the algorithms used within hardware circuits and software may also be patentable, and brand names can be trademarked as long as they are not generic descriptions. However, IP covers more than just copyrights, patents and trademarks; for example, customer databases, mailing lists, trade secrets and other business information are also included.

(4) See IP Code, identity provider, intentional programming, image processing and IndustryPack.

So would the "Killer App" for IPEs be sufficient to connect innovators with the R&D functions of large corporations, whose success depends on effective identification and commercialization of emerging technologies?
The greatest inhibitors to successful IPEs may not be limits on capital, imagination or competence, but rather structural factors that may be difficult to overcome.
Already there are signs that some of the more recent IPEs are experiencing IP holders carving out certain high value IP from the market place.
Other channels may already substitute for IPEs by matching sellers with potential buyers.
Rather than thinking in terms of separate spheres, contemporary IPE can be defined as the analysis of the interaction between the political and the economic sphere involving state and non-state actors on the national and the international level.
While the debate between neorealism and neoliberalism characterized the theoretical discourse in IPE during the 1980s, it ended with a pragmatic fusion of sorts (Baldwin 1993).
Latin American IPE scholars--a rare specie in any case have largely shied away from subscribing to the emerging dominance of the liberal-institutionalist paradigm in the United States and have instead pursued a strategy of theoretical eclecticism in their writings (Tickner 2003: 344-5) (3).

Merbau and ipe heartwood samples had no evidence of fungal attack for the first 12 months of exposure (Table 1).
As with the termite exposures, juniper heartwood was durable, but provided slightly lower decay resistance than either merbau or ipe.
Merbau and ipe heartwood were exceptionally resistant to termite and fungal attack in non-soil contact, while juniper heartwood was slightly less resistant to attack.
