In this paper we analyze the existence of complementarity vs. substitution between different forms of IPRs (namely patents as opposed to trademarks and designs) in the specific case of SMEs. We address this research question by assessing the impact on firms’ economic performance of different combinations of IPRs, using a sample of SMEs operating in manufacturing industries in Northern Italy. Our results, based on a propensity score matching approach, provide evidence in support of complementarity

Abstract

In this paper we analyze the existence of complementarity vs. substitution between different forms of IPRs (namely patents as opposed to trademarks and designs) in the specific case of SMEs. We address this research question by assessing the impact on firms’ economic performance of different combinations of IPRs, using a sample of SMEs operating in manufacturing industries in Northern Italy. Our results, based on a propensity score matching approach, provide evidence in support of complementarity
