Intellectual Property Rights and Entry Choices
AbstractThis paper studies the relationship between intellectual property rights (IPR) and the entry modes decision by multinational firms. When considering exports, foreign direct investment (FDI), and licensing as technology transfer channels, the empirical analysis of the 1995 U.S. data show that unlike the findings in the literature, strong IPR has a larger positive impact on FDI than on licensing.
