Patentes domésticas: avaliando estatísticas internacionais para localizar o caso brasileiro

Eduardo da Motta e Albuquerque


Domestic patents statistics are a rich source of information about
the technological situation of developing countries. Nevertheless, they
are scarcely used in economic debates. This paper introduces arguments
for the study of domestic patents, especially for the study of domestic
patents of developing countries. The statistical meaning of domestic patent
statistics is discussed. The differences between domestic and USPTO
patents are highlighted. Statistical exercises with a 46 countries sample
is presented, describing inter-country technological differences. The
contrast between catching up countries (Korea and Taiwan) and other
developing countries (Brazil, Argentina, India) is presented.
