The Development Agenda

Diana V. Barrowclough

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents evidence showing that some developing countries are becoming extremely dynamic players in the new markets for creative industries, acting as both consumers and producers of intellectual property (IP). Their new interest in the sector reflects the fact that its earning potential far exceeds more traditional sectors such as agriculture, and that they already have some of its important sources of comparative advantage. As with the wider IP debate, questions include how to stimulate and reward the creation and dissemination of knowledge and innovation by developing country creators or investors. IP issues must also be considered within the broader context of industrial policy related to innovation, knowledge accumulation, production, and trade. Economic or industrial policies geared toward boosting innovation are as important as policies geared toward capturing or liberating IP. There is a need to seek more equitable and fair methods of rewarding the creators and their investors in the process.
