The economics of ideas and intellectual property

I found this article in a scientific journal, PNAS. It questions the fact that governement awards of monopoly through patents and copyright are the way to go to provide appropriate incentives for innovation.

In this times of globalization, the innovation card is pulled by both European and American governements and compagnies. It is nice to see a paper looking on how this is best achieved and questioning the current system.
