The Patent System and the New Economy

Though the patent system has changed over time in response to changes in science, technology, and economic organization, there is growing concern that the U.S. patent system is nonetheless failing to keep pace with rapid advances in information technology and biotechnology. At the same time, our patent regime is also facing a separate set of challenges that arise from the growth of litigation in the United States and abroad, the globalization of commerce, and multiplying conflicts among nations' patent policies. This American Enetrprise Institute conference on March 10, 2005 explores the problems of the patent system and proposals for improving it.

Bill, thanks for letting us know about this video of the conference. I watched it and found it interesting. If you know of any other sites with videos or audios of IP conferences I'd be interested. Best regards, Kevin Fournier, Bournemouth, England

There was a time when communities would seek counsel from the elders. More experience usually translated into lessons learned. Having picked up a pearl of wisdom here and there over the years, I am now able to share a thought or two. The main lesson is to never stop learning. Seeking other points of view and new ideas like visiting your blog are steps in the right direction. Finding what is ultimately important leads one to appreciate actuality, efficiency and mindfulness. Helping others to see some of the forest through the trees is its own reward. happy thoughts
