Exclusive content and platform competition in Latin America
Economic Research Working Paper No. 63
Platforms often compete over non-price strategies such as the exclusive distribution of products. But these strategies are not always welfare-enhancing. Using rich data on audiovisuals distributed on platforms in Brazil, we find that non-exclusive distribution and availability of titles across platforms is more effective in deterring online piracy than in the single homing case. Moreover, in certain markets (TVOD), it induces higher average investment in the production of new titles upstream. We discuss options of copyright and antitrust policies in the light of these findings.

Methodology for the Development of National Intellectual Property Strategies
This core reference for national project teams developing IP strategies has been fully revised to give clear, step-by-step guidance through every phase of the lifecycle of a strategy, from initiation through to monitoring and evaluation. It includes a new implementation tool with best practices for the efficient navigation of this essential phase of the process, a detailed guide to data collection by economic sectors, institutions and clusters, and a number of essential templates and other resources.
Grand rights and opera reuse today
Economic Research Working Paper No. 62
This article studies the economic role of grand rights in the incentives to stage and reuse works from the opera canon. It complements previous research on the incentives to create new opera (Giorcelli and Moser, 2020) in the way it looks at copyright taxing availability and follow-on creativity around works. Based on a unique dataset of global opera performances, we find that changes in copyright status increase the number of total performances individual works receive on stage once copyright expires. Moreover, we provide preliminary evidence on chilling, long-term effects of status around premiering operas and revivals at the beginning of the copyright term. Based on these findings, we discuss limitations of the study and novel options for copyright policy frameworks.
Batman forever? The economics of overlapping rights
Economic Research Working Paper No. 61
When copyrighted comic characters are also protected under trademark laws, intellectual property (IP) rights can be overlapping. Arguably, registering a trademark can increase transaction costs for cross-media uses of characters, or it can help advertise across multiple sales channels. In an application to book, movie and video game publishing industries, we thus ask how creative reuse (innovation in uses) is affected in situations of overlapping rights, and whether ‘fuzzy boundaries' of right frameworks are in fact enhancing or decreasing content sales.

Guidelines to using evidence from research to support policymaking
This Guide elaborates on the best practices in conducting empirical studies in the intellectual property (IP) field. In so doing, it seeks to improve the credibility of studies, enhance transparency about what conclusions can and cannot be drawn from such studies, and encourage responsible use of studies by IP stakeholders.

Urgent Innovation – Policies and Practices for Effective Response to Public Health Crises
Public health crises require urgent innovation, not only in research and development (R&D) but also in the delivery of therapies and diagnostics. What constitutes “urgency” and “innovation” in these contexts? How are priorities and targets determined? Who is best placed to deliver results? This edition of the Global Challenges in Focus series explores themes discussed at a recent Global Challenges Seminar on the policies and practices that facilitate effective responses to global health crises.
