Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


Considers the future of intellectual property (IP) legislation in developing countries following the recession. Notes that earlier reforms were led by a dependence on the US market and foreign investment, leading to a lack of follow-up and resources for administration and enforcement. Asks what effect an increasing reliance on local markets could have on these relatively new IP regimes, post-recession.
