In Innovation Files, Nigel Cory uses data to analyze the correlation between IP protection and innovation, which shows a positive and strong relationship. The analysis also shows how developing-country members of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement will need to improve their protection of IP under the agreement. Finally, he argues that it is important to remember on World Intellectual Property Day that stronger IP protections are key to incentivizing the creativity and innovation that helps countries catch up to the frontier of technology or push it ahead.
