Intellectual Property for Economic Development

Edited by Sanghoon Ahn, Bronwyn Hall and Keun Lee ()

in Books from Edward Elgar Publishing

Abstract: Protection of intellectual property rights (IPRs) serves a dual role in economic development. While it promotes innovation by providing legal protection of inventions, it may retard catch-up and learning by restricting the diffusion of innovations. Does stronger IPR protection in a developing country encourage technology development in or technology transfer to that country? This book aims to address the issue, covering diverse forms of IPRs, diverse actors in innovation, and diverse cases from Asia and Latin America.
