This paper investigates wheter, in what direction, and to what extent one mode of technology transfer is influenced by the strength of intellectual property protection that host nations provide. Using data spanning the period 1977 - 1999, we find little support for the claim that strengthening intellectual property rights will have any sizable effect on the magnitude of overseas R&D investment by (US) multinationals. Any semblance of a positive relationship between these two variables vanishes the moment we introduce country fixed effects and time fixed effects into the regressions. One implication of our resutls is, that ceteris paribus, stronger intellectual property rights in the developing countries pursuant to the TRIPs agreement may not have any significant influence on technology transfer into thes countries via overseas R&D.
Many lawyers make their career out of practicing intellectual property law. Because the area of law often involves technical and scientific information, lawyers with a background in science, technology and math often do well in this field. Lawyers who practice patent law must pass a special examination in order to practice before the United States Patent and Trademark Office. They must demonstrate that they have a background that qualifies them to handle scientific and technical matters.. Intellectual property lawyers help companies claim and register intellectual property protections. In addition, intellectual property lawyers both bring intellectual property lawsuits and defend against them. If you practice intellectual property law, you might help people who create works protect their rights. To bring a civil claim, you draft and file a civil lawsuit and then prepare your case. You use the rules of civil procedure in order to conduct discovery. Preparing your case involves proving that the ...

By Monika Ermert for Intellectual Property Watch. The issue of intellectual property did not make the headlines during the concluding session of the five-year-long UN World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) in Tunis. And some critics are concerned it was intentional.. Discussing the future of the information society without talking about intellectual property seems odd and suggests an intentional omission, said Robin Gross, executive director of IP Justice. We got, said Gross, three minutes at the Tunis plenary, and thats it on the topic of intellectual property.. Symptomatic of this, according to Gross, was what happened to cyberlaw expert and Creative Commons founder Lawrence Lessig. The Stanford University professor was told immediately before his talk at a Roundtable of Visionaries organized by the ITU during WSIS preparations in Geneva in 2002 to not talk about intellectual property issues, but instead focus on Internet governance.. Lessig revealed this to reporters ...
Abstract: Special 301 of the 1988 Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act grants the United States Trade Representative the authority to target countries that do not adequately protect intellectual property rights. The USTR has been investigating and negotiating with several countries, including Thailand, in an effort to improve intellectual property protections for American products. As a result, Thailand has instituted noteworthy changes in its copyright and patent laws. This Comment recommends that the USTR continue to negotiate with Thailand, and that the USTR continue to exert pressure on Thailand. This Comment also suggests that because Thailand has taken steps to improve protection of intellectual property rights, the USTR should refrain from imposing any trade sanctions under Special 301 against Thailand at this time ...
Free trade policy has not been as popular with the general public. Key issues include unfair competition from countries where lower labour costs are reducing prices and the loss of well-paying jobs for producers abroad. The best possible outcome of trade negotiations is a multilateral agreement that encompasses all major trading countries. Second, free trade will be expanded to allow many participants to make the most of trade. After World War II, the United States helped create the General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade (GATT), which quickly became the world`s largest multilateral trade agreement. Free trade agreements are really more focused on managed trade, which often contains labyrinthine rules designed to distribute certain benefits to certain interests. In some respects, free trade agreements give free trade a bad name. Despite their shortcomings, however, free trade agreements have helped to reduce barriers to internal trade, expand our economic freedoms and hinder positive reforms. ...

Protecting intellectual property rights is a critical component to the success of a technology company. In order for a tech company to determine how to protect its intellectual property, the company should understand how the key intellectual property rights work. In this Part 1 of a three-part series, we discuss how patent, copyright, and trade secret ownership works in the United States if there is no agreement in place to allocate these rights.. Patents Patents are a right to exclude others from using a technology for a limited period of time. In exchange for these rights, the patent holder must disclose the invention in the patent. Without an agreement in place to state the ownership of an invention that is patented, the following applies: ...
This paper presents an empirical analysis of the influence of the strength of intellectual property rights (IPRs) on technology transfer to developing nations. The core contribution is to use regression analysis to examine the relationship between various measures of technology transfer and a set of indexes that quantify the strength of IPRs based on laws on the books, while controlling for other factors. For this purpose, the authors have assembled a data set covering a broad international panel of countries for an expanded time frame (1990-2005) in comparison with previous studies on IPRs by the Trade and Agriculture Directorate. Regression analysis is also used to assess the relationship between measures of local innovation and the IPR indexes. The study employs case study analysis of select countries - namely the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) - to complement the statistical analysis ...

Frances Salisbury is a Patent Attorney at Mewburn Ellis LLP. She has a PhD from University of Edinburgh, where she researched the role of phytochrome photoreceptors in root development in Arabidopsis thaliana. She agreed to guest post on intellectual property rights in plant science - enjoy! Patents and other intellectual property rights can be a controversial topic in the area of plant research, and much confusion exists about what protection is available, whether such work should be protected, and how this impacts on academic research. In this article, I hope to provide a very brief introduction to some of the different intellectual property rights that are available for plant research, particularly thinking about aspects that might be protectable by a patent.. So, why would you want to protect your plant research? Essentially, licensing and selling intellectual property rights can be used to create revenue for future research, or might be exchanged for the right to use other peoples ideas ...

We study the extent to which a countrys strength of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) protection mediates knowledge spillovers from Foreign Direct Investment (FDI). Following the opposing views in the IPR debate, we propose a negative effect of IPR strength on unintentional horizontal (intra-industry) knowledge diffusion. Using a unique firm-level dataset of large, publicly traded firms in 22 (mostly) developed countries, we find partial support for these expectations. Strong IPR indeed reduces horizontal knowledge diffusion, while it stimulates backward (to suppliers) knowledge diffusion. Somewhat unexpectedly however, we also find that forward (to customers) knowledge diffusion decreases with IPR strength. In general, and in line with earlier literature, the results regarding backward knowledge diffusion are most robust to changes in model specification. Our results contribute to the debate regarding the desirability of strengthening national IPR systems, and suggest that local firms might indeed

Patents and other forms of intellectual property are at the heart of a long-running, multifaceted battle over affordable access to medicines. Today, as the international community increasingly turns its attention to climate change, an important question is whether intellectual property will represent a meaningful obstacle to low- and middle-income countries as they seek to acquire the technologies necessary to reduce carbon emissions or mitigate the effects of climate change.. Innovation is critical to the development of alternative energy resources and mitigation technologies. The patent, the form of intellectual property most closely associated with innovation, grants to an inventor the exclusive right, typically for 20 years, to prevent others from making or using the patented product or process. But other forms of intellectual property should not be overlooked in terms of their potential to limit access to alternative energy resources and mitigation technologies. Copyright, for example, is ...

In accordance with an exemplary embodiment, the list of
Intellectual property (IP) is a creation of the mind. They are intangible assets for which exclusive rights are granted by law. These assets include artistic works, discoveries, inventions, designs, phrases, symbols, etc. Intellectual property is granted similar protective rights as those granted to physical property, and the stealing of that property is regulated in the U.S. at the federal level.. Protection of intellectual property affords the owner of the property exclusive rights to create, use and distribute the work. Owners are granted a temporary monopoly on the idea, and with the exception of trade secrets, owners disclose their process and/or original works to the government and the public.. In theory, by granting the owners protection from theft, IP regulation promotes creative and inventive progress. It allows owners to display their work to the public without the worry of losing profit through imitation.. Depending on the work, intellectual property falls into one of four categories: ...

by A. Bryan Endres & Carly E. Giffin. Abstract. Standard innovation theory assumes that intellectual property protection is a prerequisite to the development of technological advances. A strong intellectual property system, composed of both laws that establish intellectual property protection and a judicial or other adjudicative system to enforce the property right, has been considered necessary to stimulate innovation for the benefit of society. While not directly challenging this traditionally held belief, the authors used empirical data to test the assumption in the context of agriculture. This paper analyzed twenty years of agricultural production data from Argentina, Brazil, China, India, and the United States and their accompanying intellectual property systems. The authors sought to determine whether strong intellectual property laws, along with vigorous enforcement, do in fact correlate with greater innovation. The results of this empirical study were mixed. The authors analysis ...

What is most striking is that the pact does not include India, another regional giant. The New Delhi government withdrew from the negotiations in July. China had rejected India`s calls for a more ambitious pact, which would have done much more to connect the region`s economies, including trade in services and trade in goods. The Free Trade Agreement (FTA) between China and Iceland entered into force on 1 July 2014. Iceland is the first developed European country to recognise China as a full market economy and the first European country to negotiate a free trade agreement with China. While the United States is currently focusing on domestic policy issues, including the need to fight the pandemic and rebuild its economy and infrastructure, I`m not sure the rest of the world is waiting for America to put its house in order, said Jennifer Hillman, senior fellow for trade and international political economy at the Council on Foreign Relations.

Genomic epidemiology is a field of research that seeks to improve the prevention and management of common diseases through an understanding of their molecular origins. It involves studying thousands of individuals, often from different populations, with exacting techniques. The scale and complexity of such research has required the formation of research consortia. Members of these consortia need to agree on policies for managing shared resources and handling genetic data. Here we consider data-sharing and intellectual property policies for an international research consortium working on the genomic epidemiology of malaria. We outline specific guidelines governing how samples and data are transferred among its members; how results are released into the public domain; when to seek protection for intellectual property; and how intellectual property should be managed. We outline some pragmatic solutions founded on the basic principles of promoting innovation and access.. ...

Though a primary goal of intellectual property law is to promote creativity in technology and the arts, intellectual property doctrine pays remarkably little attention to psychology research on how to advance creativity. Psychology studies on motivation, collaboration, and divergent versus convergent cognitive thought processes provide significant insight into the creative process and indicate that certain intellectual property law hinders the very creativity the law is designed to inspire. These insights intersect at an issue vital to the forefront of creative achievement: promoting large-scale collaborative creativity. Large-scale collaborative projects have become critical in many areas of innovation due to the need for multidisciplinary expertise and substantial resources to push the envelope of human knowledge. From partnerships across private, government, and university research sectors to open and collaborative peer production, large-scale collaboration is revolutionizing fields as ...

Both copyright and trademarks are intellectual property rights which help their owner/inventor/developer to enjoy the use of their innovation for a limited time. Businesses that want to register intellectual property must identify how they differ, and then get the necessary registrations to safeguard their respective intellectual property rights. A right to copyright is accorded to authors of literary, musical, dramatic, artistic and film and sound recording productions. No names and brands, no slogans or short words or short phrases, no storylines, procedures or factual facts are protected under copyright. Copyright does not also cover concepts or ideas. The copyright of sound recordings, the cinematographic and computer software are therefore utilized to safeguard the originality of individuals such as writers, painters, dramatists, designers, artists, architects, producers. A trademark is a phrase or a visual sign used by any business to identify its goods or services from other comparable ...

[Will copyright survive the new technologies?] That question is about as bootless as asking whether pol- itics will survive democracy. The real question is what steps it will take to ensure that the promised new era of information and entertainment survives copyright. History offers a clue.

Three legal doctrines governing intellectual property are relevant for authors, editors, and publishers in biomedical publishing: copyright (the law protecting authorship and

Chinese citizens know better than to get cheeky on social media accounts, as well. It is no wonder that TR transformed the Secret Service that we all know today. The Russian government has prevailed upon Internet Service Providers to block opposition websites during times of political unrest, in addition to thousands of bans ostensibly issued for security, crime-fighting, and anti-pornography purposes. Turkey is often seen as the world leader in blocking Twitter accounts, in addition to occasionally shutting the social media service down completely, and has over a 100,000 websites blacklisted. Turkey has banned social media sites, including temporary bans against even giants like Facebook and YouTube, for political reasons. Censorship was expected to intensify even further throughout 2016. Penalties include prison time, even for the crime of liking or sharing banned content on social media. Before online news websites were totally banned, they were forbidden from reporting news gathered from ...

First, piracy is not outright theft. Infringement and theft are two different things. You would think that someone in Bidens position would know the basics. Second, ideas are not protectable under US intellectual property law. Expression can be copyrighted and inventions can be patented. Ideas cannot be. That Biden thinks they can be... is immensely troubling. Third, how do you rob one of energy? Im beginning to think that Biden doesnt know what the word steal means. Fourth, if this was robbing us of Americas creative energies, wouldnt we be seeing significantly less output and significantly less revenue? Instead, were seeing both greater output and greater revenue. True, a few legacy companies within the wider industry are struggling to adapt, but thats not the same thing. Fifth, there are tons of reasons why copyrights and patents should and are treated differently than tangible property. Is Biden really suggesting that we should have infinite copyright and patents that do ...

3D printing technology has advanced to the level where consumers are able to purchase these printers for their personal use. Just recently, 3D printing was accessible only in limited circumstances. Now, it is possible for consumers to purchase versions of 3D printers which can be used at home to print various articles and objects. In fact, the technology has advanced such that even certain foods can be printed. It is anticipated that many items will be able to be printed directly from 3D printers in the future and the capabilities are endless. However, as the hype continues for this relatively new technology, some intellectual property legal concerns are raised by virtue of its capabilities and potential use that could be made of it. These span across the various IP areas as will be discussed below.. Items which are printed can easily embed the famous trademark of another without permission. The ability to do so is facilitated by the fact that technology has made it so easy to copy such marks. ...
Quarantine introduced by the Decision of the Cabinet of Ministers No.211 dated 11 March 2020 affected all spheres of life and business in Ukraine, including intellectual property.. Quarantine is in effect until 31 July 2020, however, starting from 22 May 2020, the five-stage adaptive quarantine plan has introduced its gradual easing.. As of today, the third stage of the adaptive quarantine plan applies to the most territories of Ukraine, except for certain regions. City of Kyiv is still at the stage two having not met the criteria required to move on to the next stage of the eased quarantine measures. Given the statistic on increasing the cases of coronavirus infection, it is hard to predict if the quarantine will end on 31 July.. Below we provide information on how the state bodies and organisations in the field of IP operate during the quarantine. Given that different regions are at the different stages of the adaptive quarantine plan, we would recommend referring to the local quarantine ...

Hewlett-Packard has sued Taiwan-based PC maker Acer for alleged infringement of five U.S. patents related to PC technology.. HP hopes to block Acer from selling products stateside allegedly using HPs technology, including notebooks, desktops and media center systems.

Im from the government and Im here to help. Yeah, right.[1]. Most businesses think protecting their intellectual property is their own responsibility, and it is. But what about when your intellectual property rights are violated by an evildoer? Who are you going to call? While your obvious choice will be the law firm sponsoring this blog, you might also be able to get help from your local prosecutor.. Both State Attorneys General and Federal Prosecutors have tools at their disposal that let them bring the full force of the government to your side-when they are motivated to do so. Speaking at a State Fraud & Prevention Summit in Atlanta recently, Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr announced how his office is available to take action on cybersecurity and data breach fraud cases, and he even pointed to several Assistant AGs in the audience who were there and ready to help.[2] Carr said his states emphasis on protecting data privacy and security is enhanced by the U.S. Army recently announcing ...
This paper evaluates the effects of patent protection on pharmaceutical innovations for 26 countries that established pharmaceutical patent laws during 1978-2002. Controlling for country characteristics through matched sampling techniques to establish two proper comparison sets among 92 sampled countries and through country-pair fixed-effects regressions, this study yields robust results. National patent protection alone does not stimulate domestic innovation, as estimated by changes in citation-weighted U.S. patent awards, domestic R&D, and pharmaceutical industry exports. However, domestic innovation accelerates in countries with higher levels of economic development, educational attainment, and economic freedom. Additionally, there appears to be an optimal level of intellectual property rights regulation above which further enhancement reduces innovative activities. ...

Businesses often have important intellectual property that needs protection from competitors for the company to stay profitable. This could require patents, copyrights, trademarks, or preservation of trade secrets. Most businesses have names, logos, and similar branding techniques that could benefit from trademarking. Patents and copyrights in the United States are largely governed by federal law, while trade secrets and trademarking are mostly a matter of state law. Because of the nature of intellectual property, a business needs protection in every jurisdiction in which they are concerned about competitors.. Many countries are signatories to international treaties concerning intellectual property, and thus companies registered in these countries are subject to national laws bound by these treaties. In order to protect trade secrets, companies may require employees to sign non-compete clauses which will impose limitations on an employees interactions with stakeholders, and ...

At the Non-GMO Project, we believe that by encouraging a non-GMO seed supply, we are supporting the restoration of traditional seed breeding and the right of farmers to save and plant their own seeds and grow varieties of their choice. Its one of our most important principles. But why do we need to restore these traditional farming practices in the first place? One important reason is that some of agricultures biggest corporations use patents to control how farmers grow crops.. What are Patents?. Patents are a form of intellectual property rights. In most countries, an inventor who creates a novel product, material, or process may apply for a patent by thoroughly describing their invention, usually with the help of a patent lawyer. Once a patent has been awarded, other people cannot make or sell the same invention until the patent expires.. A patent is different from a trademark-those protect words, phrases, and symbols that indicate the source of goods and distinguish them from others. It is ...
