This week, we are adding a new free game, "Patents and R&D: A Classroom Experiment" by Amy Diduch (IREE 2010).

Abstract: "...This classroom experiment provides students with an introduction to two competing models of the impact of patents on R&D: the ‘winner-take-all’ model contains incentives for excessive research effort and the ‘knowledge spillover’ model contains incentives for free riding. Class discussion explores potential changes to current patent policy and policy alternatives for stimulating R&D."
