Editorial: why and when do firms trademark? Bridging perspectives from industrial organisation, innovation and entrepreneurship
Industry and Innovation
This editorial to the special issue on "Trademarks and their role in innovation, entrepreneurship and industrial organization" proposes a novel framework to understand why and when firms file trademarks.

We propose to study trademark motives in relation to the firm and the innovation life cycle stage. Inspireddoi:10.1080/13662716.2019.1685376 fatcat:p7fmklnhlfcbvnwt26oo4yql4a
