Global spread of pharmaceutical patent protections: micro evidence from the international equivalents of the drug patents 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…

      Konno, Yukiko
      WP#16-05 Hitotsubashi University IIR (2016/04/08)

      This study employs a multi-product composite cost function to examine whether the major Japanese general contractors obtain scope economies by diversification. The analysis results indicate that the contractors do not obtain scope economies by the sector and client diversification.

        Claim Length as a Value Predictor of a Patent

        Okada, Yoshimi : Yusuke Naito : Sadao Nagaoka
        WP#16-04 Hitotsubashi University IIR (2016/04/07)

        The claim of a patent defines the scope of patent right and provides crucial information on patent value. However, most empirical research uses only the number of claims as an indicator of patent value. We show that the breadth of a claim of Japanese patents, measured by the inverse of claim length, has significant explanatory power fo…

            Brand Royalty and Generic Competition

            Wan, Yunyun(Jiangyun)
            WP#16-01 Hitotsubashi University IIR (2016/01/13)

            Facing generic competition, a brand-name drug company sometimes launches its own generic called an "authorized generic"(AG) through a third-party entity. If an authorized party transfers a substantial part of its profits to the brand-name drug company, the letter's total profit increases as a result and every branded drug that comes of…

                『Hitotsubashi Journal of Commerce and Management』 Vol.49 No.1 pp.37-54 (2015/10/29)

                This paper investigates why some firms make more effort to innovate than others. Building on ideas articulated by Edith Penrose in The Theory of the Growth of the Firm (2009), I develop a theoretical framework articulating how the intensity with which firms engage in innovation development to heterogeneity in levels of human and physic…

                      The merger paradox is revisited in the presence of cost-reducing R&D in Cournot oligopoly. Two cases are found, in which merger is profitable without satisfying the 80-percent threshold requirement of Salant et al (1983).

                                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. Unlike earlier studies, the applicant (inventor) non-self-citations (excluding examiner citations) were used to track knowledge flow. The causal effects of disclosu…

                                      In science, research teams are increasing in size, which suggests that science is becoming more organisational. This paper aims to empirically investigate the effects of the division of labour in management and science on serendipity, which has been considered one of the great factors in science. Specifically, in examining the survey o…
