NBER Working Paper No. 23042
Issued in January 2017

---- Acknowledgments ----

I have benefited greatly from discussions with Ran Abramitsky, Steve Broadberry, Neil Cummins, Naomi Lamoreaux, Tom Nicholas, Patrick O’Brien, and Leigh Shaw-Taylor, as well as with seminar participants at Cambridge University and the Society for the History of Technology. Esther Brubaker provided invaluable assistance with the compilation and analysis of the data. I am grateful for the support of the National Science Foundation, the Center for the Protection of Intellectual Property, the Hoover National Fellows Programme, and the IP2 Center at Stanford University. Thanks are especially due to the Economic History Group at the London School of Economics, which provided a supportive and stimulating environment during the completion of this project.
