Summary:
The problem with this argument is that it simply equates patents to innovation, which has never been true. In fact, if you look at the research you quickly realize that actual innovation is totally disconnected from patents. That's because the important part of innovation (unlike Tobak's claims) have little to do with invention and much to do with the process of making any technology more useful for the market. Patents don't help with that.
