ABSTRACT

Patents provide legal rights for the patent owners to appropriate rents from their investment in innovation. Yet, some patents may be invalidated after being granted and thus the patent owners would lose such rights. In this study, we examine how patent invalidation may affect commercialization of other patents owned by the same patent owners in the market for technology. Drawing upon stigma theory, we theorize that patent invalidation is a stigma and may have a negative spillover to other patents owned by the same owners, and accordingly, may negatively influence the likelihood of selling and licensing other patents. Moreover, we expect that the negative spillover effect would be stronger for patent sales than for patent licenses. Based upon the notation of stigmatization by association, we further predict these effects would be more pronounced when focal patents share the same class or share the same inventor(s) with the invalidated patents. Empirical evidence from invention patents in China support our hypotheses.
