讲座内容简介:

Patent litigations have been one of the vital factors affecting firms in technology industries. Recent years have witnessed a surge of patent litigations often involving entrepreneurial firms. While most extant research focuses on the impact of patent litigations on firm innovation, much less is known about how litigations affect venture financing, which is one of the most central issues for entrepreneurial firms. This paper examines how patent litigations affect entrepreneurial firms’ venture capital (VC) financing. Using a dataset linking patent litigations to VC-backed firms and exploiting the variation in courts’ friendliness to litigants among different regions, we find that litigations reduce an entrepreneurial firm’s probability of receiving VC investment as well as the amount of investment received. In addition, we find that the negative impacts are more prominent for firms that lack other quality signals.
