Abstract

The issue of innovation in developing nations and the role in IP in supporting it is of late of significant interest. But what is the effect of systemic disregard for IP rights on the global innovation system. Does it spur more innovation or less? Robert Atkinson will discuss how a larger share of nations are increasingly focused on winning the innovation race, how weak IP regimes play a key role in their strategies, and what the effects of this is likely to be on innovation.
