The innovative power of slack time | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

When we generally talk about ‘legacy’, we often immediately attach positive connotations; our favourite sports team’s past successes, that treehouse that our grandfather built or Martin Luther King Jr.’s contribution to racial equality.

The price of innovation: higher fees could stifle patents

The price of innovation: higher fees could stifle patents | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

Patents are instrumental to our current innovation system. They encourage inventors to share their ideas, rather than keeping them secreted away, by offering the inventor exclusive rights to exploit their idea for a limited period.

Yet they also cost money to administer, and much of this cost is passed on to the inventor. If that cost is too great, then there’s a risk the patent system will fail to do its duty.
