US Software and Business Method Patents: Stimulus to Innovation or Litigation?
In the US continued and increased issuance of software and business method patents is criticized by many. Some argue that software and business method patents do not stimulate innovation but impede software development and encourage patent litigation. Beyond anecdotal evidence, no systematic study of the extent of patent litigation due to the new software and business method patents is available. Data is obtained from various databases and is analyzed to ascertain if there is a connection between patent litigation and these new classes of patents. KEYWORDS Patents, software, business methods, litigation, Intellectual property, patent infringement.
