International Technology Transfer Regimes in Latin America

Correa, Juan I.International Technology Transfer Regimes in Latin America (Max Planck Institute for Innovation & Competition Research Paper, No. 24-07), 2024, 121 S. (gemeinsam mit Francisco Beneke Ávila).

The present study covers regulation and public policy aimed at promoting international technology transfer in Latin America, focusing on eight countries: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. The first part of this comparative study analyses national regulations on technology transfer, whether they incorporate definitions or whether there are specific incentives to encourage international technology transfer between countries. It also examines whether the different jurisdictions establish registration conditions for this type of contract. The second part analyses the contractual regulation from a civil, commercial, and antitrust law perspective. In particular, this study com-pares each country’s approach to regulate restrictive clauses that may hinder the dissemination of technology. Lastly, the study covers international agreements on technology transfer.
