An Inventor creates and then sells [[Intangible assets]] such as patents and copyrights. Firms using this business model exclusively are relatively rare, but some technology firms generate part of their revenues this way. Example:
* Lucent’s Bell Labs (see patentsales.lucentssg.com).

Firms that license the use of their [[Intangible assets]] while still retaining ownership are not classified as Inventors; they are [[Intellectual Landlord]]s (see below).
