Abstract

Quelles sont les causes de l’appropriation des ressources végétales et ses conséquences sur le développement économique ? La constitution du potentiel d’innovation des firmes multinationales est si coûteuse que l’appropriation des inventions qui en découlent, mais aussi des ressources qui le forment est fondamentale. D’où leur rôle dans l’élargissement et le renforcement des droits de propriété intellectuelle. Mais, priver les pays en développement de leurs ressources végétales risque d’entraver toute stratégie de développent endogène. Les solutions alternatives, comme les droits de propriété collectifs, n’apportent pas de réponse satisfaisante. Une approche plus systémique de l’innovation est souhaitable. What are the causes of the appropriation of vegetal resources and its consequences on economic development? The formation of the innovation potential of multinational firms is so costly that the appropriation of the inventions stemming from it and of the resources it includes is fundamental. This explains their role in the extension and the strengthening of intellectual property rights. However, depriving developing countries from their vegetal resources may hinder all strategy of endogenous development. Alternative solutions, such as collective property rights do not give satisfying answers. A more systemic approach of innovation is needed.
