Does One Size Fit All? the International Patent Regime (International Trade) Harvard International Review read online review & book description:
Over the years, Royal Philips Electronics has been responsible for an impressive series of breakthrough inventions, such as compact audio cassettes and compact discs. What is less well-known is that the company was set up in 1891 to exploit somebody else's invention--Thomas Edison and Joseph Swan's carbon filament lamp. Commercial success generated considerable revenues that enabled the firm to produce its own inventions and eventually become one of the world's most innovative corporations. How could Philips get such a good head start? From 1869 until 1912, Holland had no patent law. This meant that local entrepreneurs could copy foreign inventions for their own profit, as long as they could figure out how the inventions worked. [ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]
