Ownership-specific advantages(redirected from Ownership Specific Advantage)
Intangible assets in a company, such as intellectual property, property rights, brand recognition, and other areas. Owning the copyright to a superior product is an example of an ownership-specific advantage, as is an exceptionally good organizational system. Ownership-specific advantages are less quantitative ways a company is able to remain competitive against companies in the same industry. That is, the idea behind ownership-specific advantages states that there is more to competition that simply providing the best price. Intangibles also play a significant role.
