The innovator of an enabling technology has a special business model challenge because the applicability to many downstream verticals forecloses, as a practical matter, ownership of all the relevant complements.
Complementary assets vertical and lateral in the digital context are no longer just potential value-capture mechanisms through asset price appreciation or through preventing exposure to monopolistic bottleneck pricing by others ; they may well be needed simply for the technology to function.
