Patents Do Not Equal Innovation


Having come from an Innovation Management class (yes, there is such a thing) where we discussed data from a study showing that patents are a minor percentage (typically 5-25%) of ensuring innovation delivers a competitive edge, this Techdirt article really hit home. And this information comes from IBM, who practically designed the U.S. Patent Office IT infrastructure and holds the largest number of patents in the US - they should know what they're talking about either as registrant or consultant.

I wonder if Eolas or Nomadix share this view. Or rather, I'm positive they don't, otherwise they wouldn't misuse the system the way they do.
