Excerpt
Abstract: This paper evaluates a model of sequential innovation in which industry structure (the number of firms) is endogenous and a standard of patentability determines the proportion of all inventions that qualify for protection. In equilibrium, the number of firms actively engaged in R&D is the primary determinant of an industry?s rate of progress. The patentability standard affects firms' entry decisions because it affects the expected profits associated with innovations.
