Marcia Carla Pereira Ribeiro, Weimar Freire da Rocha Junior, Vivian Amaro Czelusniak

Abstract


This paper emphasizes the element of cooperation as instrumental in the efficiency of business agreements and the possibility to extend this framework to creative goods agreements. It utilizes the economic analysis of law as a tool, since agreements of this kind are normally protracted over time and confidence between the parties is fundamental to maintaining relationships. The procedural method used was monographic, while the research technique was bibliographic, and by case study involving technology transfer. By way of outcome, cooperation was seen as instrumental in making business agreements to transfer technology more efficient, by being able to reduce the likelihood of litigation relating to these agreements, and as an instrument for stability, promoting the retention of these agreements over a longer period.
