Zagreb International Review of Economics & Business, Vol.7 No.2 November 2004. -

This paper provides a bargaining aspect into the analysis of intellectual property protection across borders. We investigate the conditions under which a mutually accepted level of intellectual property enforcement can be agreed upon between two negotiating governments. We also explore the implications for optimal R&D of the varying degree of intellectual property protection. We find that intellectual property infringement need not always hamper an innovator’s investment choices; zero patenting across borders can be a mutually agreed level of protection in equilibrium; and the degree of ‘trust’ can have a significant impact on the negotiation outcome.
