Harvard Business School: "Modularity for Value Appropriation: Drawing the Boundaries of Intellectual Property," by Joachim Henkel and Carliss Y. Baldwin (No. 09-097, February 2009, .pdf format, 48p.).

Abstract:

Existing theory of modularity explains how modular designs create value. We extend this theory to address value appropriation. A product or process design that is modular with respect to intellectual property (IP) allows firms to better capture value in situations where knowledge and value creation are distributed across many actors. We use case studies to develop an inductive theory of "IP modularity," from which we derive testable propositions and managerial implications.
