CEP Report
Pathway From Poverty? Intellectual Property And Developing Countries
Louise C. Keely
April 2000
Paper No' CEPSP14:

This new report, published in association with the IPI is the first wide-ranging analysis of the economic studies done on intellectual property laws. It concludes that there are some benefits from intellectual property protection; but that strengthening such protection may not always boost economic welfare and might even reduce it, even in developed countries.
