Intellectual Property


The development of intellectual property law involves policy considerations of industry, Congress, federal agencies, and international standard-setting organizations. We apply economic principles to help understand tradeoffs in regulations that affect copyrights, patents, and private litigation in the federal courts.

Event – Patents in Theory and Practice: Implications for Reform

Patent reform is high on the agenda for the upcoming Congress. Proponents of reform claim the current system produces excessive litigation, particularly on the part of “patent assertion entities,” imposing costs on entrepreneurs and others and deterring innovation. Those on the other side suggest that the litigation explosion is overstated and that patent reform efforts will weaken intellectual property protections to the detriment of innovation. Complicating this issue is that the effects of the America Invents Act, recent court decisions, as well as changes at USPTO are still unfolding.
