Intellectual Property Rights Protection and Trade: An Empirical Analysis

Emmanuelle Auriol (), Sara Biancini and Rodrigo Paillacar

No 22-1354, TSE Working Papers from Toulouse School of Economics (TSE)

Abstract: The paper proposes an empirical analysis of the determinants of the adoption of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) and their impact on innovation in manufacturing. The analysis is conducted with panel data covering 112 countries. First we show that IPR protection is U-shaped with respect to a country’s market size and inverse-U-shaped with respect to the aggregated market size of its trade partners. Second, reinforcing IPR protection reduces on-the-frontier and inside-the-frontier innovation in developing countries, without necessarily increasing innovation at the global level.
