Schmidt, Klaus M. ORCID logoORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0002-5011-0828 (November 2010): Standards, Innovation Incentives, and the Formation of Patent Pools. SFB/TR 15 Discussion Paper No. 342 [PDF, 181kB]


Technological standards give rise to a complements problem that affects pricing and innovation incentives of technology producers. In this paper I discuss how patent pools can be used to solve these problems and what incentives patent holders have to form a patent pool. I offer some suggestions how competition authorities can foster the formation of welfare increasing patent pools.
