Abstract: This study aims to empirically analyze the effect of scales of fees fixed by the Patent Office on renewal decisions. The objective is to discuss the empirical validity of the hypothesis, which is the heart of all renewal models, namely the renewal decisions are based on economic criteria: agents will renew their patents if the value of patent held during an additional year exceeds the cost of renewal. Indeed, we test on French data for the period from 1970 to 2000, the relationship between the proportions of renewed patents and amounts of annuities. The results indicate a statistically significant negative effect between these two variables. This confirms the theoretical assumption that the effective life of the patent can be influenced by the amount and profile of these annuities. The analysis used can improve our understanding in favor of the patent system as a means of action on innovation through the renewal system.
