Title: Intellectual Property Rights and Multinational Firms’ Modes of Entry
Authors: Puttitanun, Thitima

Abstract: This paper studies the relationship between intellectual property rights (IPR) and the entry mode decision by multinational firms. A simple model is developed allowing firms to choose among export, foreign direct investment (FDI), and licensing. Firms in the recipient country may imitate the technology, and their abilities to do so depend both on the nature of each mode and on the level of IPR protection in that country. Unlike the traditional beliefs, however, strong IPR can affect FDI more than licensing.
