Tigers and dragons at the world intellectual property organization

Authors: Morin, Jean-Frédéric; Bannerman, Sara
Abstract: “Made in Japan” and “Made in Korea” once signified cheap fake goods copied from abroad. Today, however, Japan and South Korea are known for their exports of innovative technology (e.g. Sony, Toyota and Toshiba from Japan; LG, Kia and Samsung from Korea) and creative cultural products (e.g. manga and video games from Japan; pop music and soap operas from Korea). How did these countries, as the rising powers of their day, transform from being “free-riders” on foreign intellectual property (IP) to being innovation-exporters and proponents of strong protection of foreign IP at the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO)?
