The OECD Working Party of the Trade Committee just released a paper, Policy Components to the Strengthening of IPRs in Developing Countries,  TAD/TC/WP(2010)12/FINAL The paper examines – from an empirical,  economic perspective – policies that complement the generally strengthened framework for IPRs in developing countries. The report concluded that IPR reform delivered positive economic results. The report found that reforms “concerning patent protection tended to deliver the most substantial results, but the results for copyright reform and trademark reform were also positive and significant.”
