Patents and Innovation Economics

  1. Dale,
    Great post! “Frivolous” is often a matter of opinion. One man’s “shakedown” is another man’s assertion of valid patent rights.

    Also, I’ve often searched high and low for a definition of “software patents” and not really found one. (The subject of a recent post over at my blog.) At this point, I may as well resign myself to using the term as shorthand for a software-implemented invention.

    • Excellent point. I have often made the point that no one defines or can define a “business method patent.”
