Little things about Scientitic Watch and Information Professionnals

Quote: “Patents do not stifle innovation…”

Patents do not stifle innovation any more than copyright laws stifle creativity. (…)

Patents ensure the people who put in the time and effort to achieve success are rewarded for that effort, and thereby encourage them to go back to the chalkboard to develop the next big thing. But just as importantly, patents prevent others from reaping all of the benefits of someone else’s endeavors without doing any of the hard/expensive groundwork. ”
