Motivation & Goal:
This article explores what factors determine the decision of a patent pool to accept new inputs. For instance we prove that firms already member of the pool or holding large
patent portfolios are able to include lower quality patents. In particular, as measured by a new indicator, insiders and firms practicing the technology file patents that are better aligned with the criteria of essentiality.This is Henry’s and my first common paper. We will present it at a couple of conferences this summer, so we would greatly appreciate your comments and recommendations.
