Are Patents Property?


The number of patents being invalidated is growing.

Many individuals assume that intellectual property is an example of a type of property. With the word property in the name one could see why people would think that. Be that as it may, as lawyers are all too familiar with, the law is never that easy. This white paper reviews how at least one judge believes that patents, which are possibly the most classic form of intellectual property, are in fact not actually “property” as that word is legally understood.
