I think law makers understand the ideal here of wanting to protect and encourage the process of innovation which has traditionally been the domain of independent inventors. However, these days the reality is innovations come from teams of people working across geographies and companies. In my view no one in this debate is without an ax to grind, even the storied independent inventor. The magnitude of the problem is huge, especially considering the very diferetn dynamics of different kinds of industries where innovation is key. How can we define for the 21st century what a patent is as a unit of innovation and how it should be handled? Thoughts?
