Boon or Bane for Technological Innovation?: Software Patents

Pure software patents have become the focus of a heated innovation policy debate. On the one hand, new technological innovation is now a commonplace feature of our lives.  On the other hand, the high-tech industry seems awash in patent litigation, especially in the “smart phone war” between Apple, Samsung, Google, Microsoft, and other high-tech firms.

As a result, commentators now complain about the “problem of software patents.”

The IP Practice Group at the Federalist Society for Law and Public Policy Studies [1] is now hosting a teleforum thatb will consider whether software patents advance development of new technological innovation or hinder innovation. The panelists represent all viewpoints on this topic and bring academic, legal and industry experiences to the issue.



Call begins at 2:00 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
