Intellectual Property And Economic Development
Sherwood examines the historical evolution of intellectual property as a legal and commercial institution. He introduces the five basic categories of protection--patents, copyright, trade secrets, trademarks, and mask works--and discusses how intellectual property protection works in practice. He examines the influence of economic theory on the study of intellectual property in relation to economic growth in developing countries; the impact of intellectual property protection on the economic development process in Brazil and Mexico; and the impact of weak intellectual property protection on research activity at traditional technology source points, on technology intermediation, and on efforts to provide financial support for research. He concludes with propositions to support national policies of weak protection for intellectual property rights, with examples of Japan and Korea. ISBN 0-8133-8019-7: $28.50.
