''Intellectual Property Protection and Firm Innovation''
( 2011, Vol. 31 No.4 )
 
 
This paper studies the question of whether and how an employee innovator should commercialize an innovation, when doing so within the firm is less costly than pursuing an outside venture, but risks expropriation by the firm. We show that a weaker chance of expropriation, interpreted as the firm`s ability to protect internally developed intellectual property, can facilitate commercialization of innovations.
