We study the role of standards and intellectual property as part of global innovation and marketing strategies using a law and economics framework. The project includes case studies of product and technology standardization strategies, including platforms, and essential and patent litigation, from both economic and legal perspectives. In addition, we conduct empirical analysis of patent and standard document data and theoretical analysis to derive a general framework. Through our study of past and present strategies, the framework will allow us to derive policy implication covering both existing and new technologies and products.
