Abstract: This paper addresses the effects of a stronger patent system in developing countries on the quality of transferred technology and welfare. We show that a stronger patent system can reduce the quality of licensed technology. The presence of technology licensing may encourage the developing country to adopt a stronger patent system compared with the situation where licensing is not an option.
