Summary:
Conferees at an intellectual property symposium held at University of California Berkeley’s Boalt Hall School of Law debated the importance of patents with today’s technology. Brad Feld, a venture capitalist, described software patents as an “evil scourge on our planet” that stifle innovation and believes technology has no value by the time it is patented. Feld stated software patents should be abolished and the problems of software patents would be solved with large companies creating patent software commons of cross licensing the patents.
