Innovation American Style: Competition and Cooperation in the Search for a "Better Mousetrap".
Ewing, Ky P., Jr.
This document provides a transcript of a paper presented at the Industrial Research Institute Fall 1980 Meeting in Washington, D.C., in which the importance of the industrial research laboratory in cooperative research is reviewed. The role of antitrust policy in corporate decisions to engage in research and development is also discussed, and the "Antitrust Guide Concerning Joint Research Ventures," a government publication, is introduced. This document clearly explains the position of the Department of Justice in providing guidance on collaborative research. Past cases involving joint research are used to illustrate the Department's view that antitrust law and innovation are compatible in most instances. Cooperative research involving both government and industry is also discussed. (CS)
