Intellectual Property (IP) marketplaces and how they work: evidence from German pharmaceutical firms
Andersen, Birgitte and Rossi, Federica and Stephan, J. (2010) Intellectual Property (IP) marketplaces and how they work: evidence from German pharmaceutical firms. Review of European Economic Policy 45 (1), pp. 35-47. ISSN 0020-5346.
This article examines a sample of German pharmaceutical firms to highlight the strategic reasons why firms participate in various intellectual property (IP) marketplaces, both proprietary (patents and copyrights) and non-proprietary (open source and non-patented technology). The obstacles that prevent these marketplaces from functioning efficiently are also investigated. The analysis suggests that IP policy must embrace all IP forms and must recognise that IP marketplaces do not work “automatically” but suffer many institutional failures.
