We study the relationship between innovation and standards using the law and economics framework. Based on the analysis, we derive implications for standardization policy for new technologies that saddle two or more industries, such as electricity and information technology in smart grid technology and fine instruments and medicine in brain machine interface. We analyze the standardization process, standard setting organizations (SSO), patent pools, and their IP licensing policies of successful standards, such as those in information technology and measurement instruments.
