Keywords: Intellectual property rights; Innovation; Economic development 1. Introduction The protection of intellectual property rights (IPRs) in developing countries has been a much debated issue in recent years. This debate is often placed in a North–South framework, where the predominant view is that southern (developing) countries tend to. Intellectual property is at the heart of modern economic life. In many countries, investment in intangible assets is growing faster than investment in tangible assets. Policy makers - whether in rich or poor economies - seek to promote an intellectual property framework that is conducive to innovation and economic growth.
The studies presented point to an important development dimension to the protection of intellectual property. But a one-size fits all approach to intellectual property is unlikely to work. There is need to adjust intellectual property norms to domestic needs, taking into account developing countries’ capacity to innovate, technological needs. An important question for many countries is whether stricter enforcement of intellectual property laws is a good strategy for economic growth. This chapter examines the role of intellectual property rights in economic growth, utilizing cross-country data on patent protection, trade regime, and country-specific by:

interfaces with development in different socio-economic contexts. Legislative reform in the field of intellectual property, and the modernization of the IP infrastructures of many countries has raised expectations on how the IP system can be used to promote economic development.

In particular, we show that the current global regime of intellectual property rights is inadequate in serving the purpose of economic development and welfare.
We then examine an extensive set of case. The crucial question is whether or not the extension of IP regimes assists developing countries in obtaining access to such technologies, and whether and how intellectual property right protection might help developing countries to achieve economic and social development and to reduce poverty.

The international community has paid considerable attention to problems associated with intellectual property that poor countries buy-such as the increased cost of pharmaceuticals brought on by the WTO's agreement on the Trade Related Aspects of. For most countries, economic development involves a process of 'catching up' with leading countries at the time.
This is never achieved solely by physical assets and labour alone: also needed are the accumulation of technological capabilities, educational attainment, entrepreneurship, and the development of the necessary institutional infrastructure.
Protection of intellectual property rights (IPRs) serves a dual role in economic development. While it promotes innovation by providing legal protection of inventions, it may retard catch-up and learning by restricting the diffusion of innovations. Does stronger IPR protection in a developing country encourage technology development in or technology transfer to that country.
