Theoretical studies indicate that the welfare of the developing countries might either be improved or damaged by thestrengthening of their own intellectual property rights. Net gains through their agricultural sectors will be positive if thepayoff from new innovations is sufficiently different as compared to the technology-exporting countries. Scattered evidencesupports the hypotheses that agricultural R&D is responsive to IPRs in developing countries, but there is also evidence thatdeveloped-country technology is sufficiently appropriate for developing countries as to offer substantial free-rider gains.However, without IPRs it seems unlikely that the agricultural productivity rates in developing countries can begin to catch upwith those in developed country agriculture. ©1999 Elsevier Science B.V.
