Avoiding Imitation of Blue Ocean

That is something called your "TM". One basically cannot stop people from imitating, but one can still work in BOS finding the UNIQUE space and till someone imitates you, you are the leader.
There are some legal options that do not allow imitating of some products for so many years. I think that is much possible with all R&D Products.
