Intellectual Property Protection and the Licensing of Technology to Developing Countries
AbstractIn this paper, the influence of stronger intellectual property protection on technology transfer into developing countries via licensing is analyzed. Using panel data for the post-TRIPs period 1995-2005, it is found that stronger protection is associated with increased royalty and license fee payments by developing countries, implying greater technology transfer into these countries. [Working Paper No. 188].
