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.

Where Should Innovation in Education Come From?

Where Should Innovation in Education Come From? - Bright - Medium

I’ve been thinking a lot about innovation in education over the years and have been intrigued about how much the conversation has changed lately. Did you notice how many proposed sessions for SxSWedu this year included the words “innovation” or “design thinking”? Yes, of course, springtime in Austin is the most likely venue for conversations about innovation in education… but it seems, to me, that innovation may have finally gone mainstream.

Good Disruption / Bad Disruption | Digital Tonto | The Jazz of Innovation | Scoop.it

Disruption is not, in fact, something new.  Since ancient times, from Aristotle to Ptolemy, leading all the way up to the present day, we have built models to explain how the world works and we act on those models to solve problems.  Modern medicine, for example, could not exist without models like the germ theory or the structure of DNA.

What's the role of intellectual property in business?

The recent Hi-Tech Awards Gala Dinner in Wellington was a fantastic showcase of New Zealand's innovative businesses. But talking to those in the industry after dinner highlighted a worrying fact. A lot of hi-tech businesses are still scratching their heads when it comes to IP strategy.

This is a little surprising because there is no shortage of IP strategy experts and specialists offering their services in New Zealand. Clearly there is more work to be done to ensure our most innovative companies understand the role IP plays in their business.

There’s certainly no shortage of academic and business research to work from – namely, the Everett Rogersmodel that uses a normal distribution to segment the market, Geoffrey Moore’s seminal works “Crossing the Chasm” and “Inside the Tornado” that describes specific tactics.
