The Case To End Software Patents

At the beginning of November, the University of New Hampshire School of Law officially designated its library as the “New Hampshire Patent and Trademark Resource Center.” The hope is for the center to “promote a culture of innovation and entrepreneurship,” says David Kappos, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property, and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

Incidentally, we just came across a video made by George Mason University professor Alex Tabarrok. In the video, Tabarrok makes the case that patents encourage innovation in some fields, but hinder it in others.

Tabarrok blogs for Marginal Revolution.
