Okada, Yoshimi : Yusuke Naito : Sadao Nagaoka
RIETI Discussion Paper 16-E-092 Research Institute of Economy, Trade and Industry (RIETI) (2016/11/29)

Delineating the patent scope consistently with the contribution of the disclosed invention is one of the most crucial requirements for a patent system to promote innovation effectively. Given the incentive of an applicant to set a scope for the patent as broad as possible, an important task of the Patent Office is to narrow it so that …

    We investigate the global spread of pharmaceutical patent protections as acquired by firms, based on a novel global patent database for all significant medical drugs introduced in Japan. It gives us the propensity of filing and grant rate for each country for the granted patents in Japan. Major findings are the following. Both the fili…

      Effects of early patent disclosure on knowledge dissemination: evidence from the pre-grant publication system introduced in the United States

      Okada, Yoshimi and Sadao Nagaoka
      WP#15-12 Hitotsubashi University IIR (2015/07/10)

      In order to assess the disclosure function of the patent system, this study examined the impact of the pre-grant publication system introduced in the United States in 2000.

        An Economic Analysis of Deferred Examination System: Evidence from Policy Reforms in Japan

        Yamauchi, Isamu : Sadao Nagaoka
        WP#14-05 Hitotsubashi University IIR (2014/06/26)

        We investigate how a deferred patent examination system promotes ex-ante screening of patent applications, which reduces both the number of granted patents and the use of economic resources for examinations, without reducing the return from R&D. Based on a real option theory, we develop a model of examination request behaviors. Exploit…
