The comingled code : open source and economic development by Joshua Lerner( )

18 editions published between 2010 and 2013 in English and held by 1,914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discussions of the economic impact of open source software often generate more heat than, light. Advocates Passionately assert the benefits of open source while critics decry its effects. Missing from the debate is rigorous economic analysis and systematic economic evidence of the impact of open source on consumers, firms, and economic development in general. This book fills that gap. In The Comingled Code, Josh Lerner and Mark Schankerman, drawing on a new, large-scale, data base, show that open source and propietary software interact in sometimes unexpected ways, they discuss the policy implications of these findings

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,039 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The economic importance of innovative activity brings with it an active debate on public policy's effect on the innovation process. This annual series, sponsored by the National Bureau of Economic Research, brings the work of leading academic researchers to the broader policy community. Volume 6 considers such topics as the diversity of patent protection and the implications of weak patents for innovation and competition; reforms in U.S. patent policy that will encourage innovation; the multifaceted benefits of the Internet for consumers, including price competition and novel forms of communication; the drug development and approval process; the "offshoring" of research and development; and the advantages of industry-specific studies of the relationship between innovation and competition.

The rate and direction of inventive activity revisited( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and Swedish and held by 937 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the importance of innovation to economic development is widely understood, the conditions conducive to it remain the focus of much attention. This volume offers new contributions to fundamental questions relating to the economics of innovation and technological change. Central to the development of new technologies are institutional environments, and among the topics discussed are the roles played by universities and other nonprofit research institutions and the ways in which the allocation of funds between the public and private sectors affects innovation. Other essays examine the practice of open research and how the diffusion of information technology influences knowledge accumulation
Venture capital and private equity : a casebook by Joshua Lerner( Book )

54 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 833 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Whether you are an entrepreneur seeking private equity finance, a private equity investor grappling with the industry's changes, or an investor interested in private equity as a potential investment, this book presents a collection of real world cases - supplemented by detailed industry notes - that explore the world of venture capital and buyout funds."--BOOK JACKET. "The organization mirrors that of the venture capital/private equity process itself: the first part explores the raising and structuring of private equity funds, as well as the perspective of investors; the second part explores the selection, oversight, and adding value to firms - the heart of the private equity cycle; the third part describes how private equity groups reap attractive returns from successful investments; the final section explores the emerging efforts to translate the private equity model into other settings, such as corporate venturing programs."--BOOK JACKET
International differences in entrepreneurship( )

11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 791 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Surprisingly, there has been little systematic research or comparative analysis to show how the growth of entrepreneurship differs among countries in various stages of development. International Differences in Entrepreneurship fills this void by explaining how a country's institutional differences, cultural considerations, and personal characteristics can affect the role that entrepreneurs play in its economy. Developing an understanding of the origins of entrepreneurs as well as the choices they make and the complexity of their activities across countries and industries are of central importance to this volume. In addition, contributors consider how environmental factors of individual economies, such as market regulation, government subsidies for banks, and support for entrepreneurial culture affect the industry and the impact that entrepreneurs have on growth in developing nations."--Jacket

Conflict of interest in the issuance of public securities : evidence from venture capital by Paul A Gompers( Book )

13 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this paper we investigate potential conflicts of interest in the issuance of public securities in a setting analogous to a universal bank, i.e., the underwriting of initial public offerings by investment banks that hold equity in a firm through a venture capital subsidiary. We contrast two hypotheses. Under anticipate the conflict. The suggests that investment banks are able to utilize superior information when they underwrite securities. The evidence supports the rational discounting hypothesis. Initial public offerings that are underwritten by affiliated investment banks perform as well or better than issues of firms in which none of the investment banks held a prior equity position. Investors do, however, require a greater discount at the offering to compensate for potential adverse selection. We also provide evidence that investment bank-affiliated venture firms address the potential conflict by investing in and subsequently underwriting less information-sensitive issues. Our evidence provides no support for the prohibitions on universal banking instituted by the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933
The determinants of corporate venture capital success : organizational structure, incentives, and complementarities by Paul A Gompers( Book )

16 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 114 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We examine a sample of over thirty-thousand transactions by corporate and other venture organizations. Corporateventure investments in entrepreneurial firms appear to be at least as successful (using such measures as the probability of the portfolio firm going public) as those backed by independent venture organizations, particularly when there is astrategic overlap between the corporate parent and the portfolio firm. While corporate venture capitalists tend to invest at a premium to other firms, this premium appears to be no higher in investments with a strong strategic fit. Finally, corporate programs without a strong strategic focus appear to be much less stable, frequently ceasing operations after only a few investments, but strategically focused programs appear to be as stable as independent venture organizations. The evidence is consistent with the existence of complementarities that allow corporations to effectively select and add value to portfolio firms, but is somewhat at odds with suggestions that the structure of corporate venture funds limits their effectiveness
Preliminary injunctive relief : theory and evidence from patent litigation by Jean Olson Lanjouw( Book )

13 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines the suggestion that established plaintiffs request preliminary injunctions to predate on less financially healthy firms. We first present a model in which differences in litigation costs drive the use of preliminary injunctions in civil litigation. The hypothesis is tested using a sample of 252 patent suits, which allows us to characterize the litigating parties while controlling for the nature of the dispute. The evidence is consistent with the predation hypothesis. We then explore various implications of the model and the impact of policy reforms
Does venture capital spur innovation? by Samuel Kortum( Book )

14 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While policymakers often assume venture capital has a profound impact on innovation, that premise has not been evaluated systematically. We address this omission by examining the influence of venture capital on patented inventions in the United States across twenty industries over three decades. We address concerns about causality in several ways, including exploiting a 1979 policy shift that spurred venture capital fundraising. We find that the amount of venture capital activity in an industry significantly increases its rate of patenting. While the ratio of venture capital to R & D has averaged less than 3% in recent years, our estimates suggest that venture capital accounts for about 15% of industrial innovations. We address concerns that these results are an artifact of our use of patent counts by demonstrating similar patterns when other measures of innovation are used in a sample of 530 venture-backed and non-venture-backed firms
The enforcement of intellectual property rights : a survey of the empirical literature by Jean Olson Lanjouw( Book )

15 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper examines several recent avenues of empirical research into the enforcement of" intellectual property rights. To frame these issues, we start with a stylized model of the patent" litigation process. The bulk of the paper is devoted to linking the empirical literature on patent" litigation to the parameters of the model. The four major areas we consider are (i) how the" propensity to litigate patents varies with the expected benefits of litigation the cost of litigation affects the willingness to enforce patents, (iii) how the cost of enforcing" patents changes the private value of patent rights, and (iv) the impact of intellectual property" litigation on the innovation process itself
The simple economics of open source by Joshua Lerner( Book )

15 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There has been a recent surge of interest in open source software development, which involves developers at many different locations and organizations sharing code to develop and refine programs. To an economist, the behavior of individual programmers and commercial companies engaged in open source projects is initially startling. This paper makes a preliminary exploration of the economics of open source software. We highlight the extent to which labor economics, especially the literature on "career concerns," can explain many of these projects₂ features. Aspects of the future of open source development process, however, remain somewhat difficult to predict with "off-the-shelf" economic models
