Title: How Do Patent Wars Affect International Market Entry? Patent Infringement Lawsuits and Entry Decisions in the Global Mobile Phone Industry 

Abstract: A spiral of patent infringement lawsuits among firms in an industry generates what has been referred to as a patent war. This paper contributes to the literature on patent enforcement strategies and antecedents of market entry decisions by looking at how patent war intensity in a country influences a firm’s decisions to enter that country. Our results show that the intensity of patent wars in a country has a negative effect on a firm’s likelihood of entering that country. We also show this relationship to be less negative the larger the size of a firm’s patent stock. We test our hypotheses with a sample of 84 mobile phone vendors operating in 45 countries from 2003 to 2015.
