Panelists at IP Awareness Summit discuss IP Education Today: Stephen Haber (Stanford), Bob Bramson (founder, InterDigital), Ked Seddon (LoT Network), Russell Slifer (Deputy Director of the USPTO, 2014-2017)
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a person in possession of a good invention, must be in want of a patent, but with the emergence of significant abuses of the system, public perception has suffered. Manny Schecter explains. . .
As the first of its kind, the Intellectual Property Awareness Summit aimed to enhance IP understanding and address confusion. Bruce Berman explains. . .
Intellectual property has always been a key element in supporting US prosperity, but recent court decisions and the introduction of the America Invents Act have led to a weakened IP system in comparison to foreign rivals. . .
The Center for Intellectual Property Understanding (CIPU) and the Michelson 20MM Foundation are partnering to improve awareness of intellectual property rights.
The CIPU report, “Patterns in Media Coverage of Patent Disputes,” reviewed 127 articles that dealt with ‘patent infringement.’
Tech media often provide incomplete and potentially misleading reporting on patent disputes and “trolls”…
CIPU published a research report analyzing patterns in media coverage of patent infringement fir articels published in 2016.
The study found that nearly half of the sampled articles were “op-ed or trend pieces.”
Analysis of 127 articles published in business, technology and general news media show almost half are opinion pieces.
Typically, the reform debate regarding the U.S. patent system features smaller players in the system on the one side, arguing for a return to stronger patent enforcement rights. . .
