Are intellectual property and patent laws hampering innovation, research and development? 14.4.2014 DNA: Top News
There has been a long standing debate between intellectual property rights activist and those fighting for open data and information, with the former attempting to incentivise innovations and the later promoting free access to the said innovations. Major companies frequently get into nasty legal battles for rights to claim new technologies, Apple and Samsung being among the most recent . But the important question of the debate remains unanswered—does withholding technology designs and information hamper progress, or does it bolster competitive race for better products? There is no one way to answer this. Former intellectual property lawyer, turned social entrepreneur, Gautam John, weighs in, “Patents are not a proxy for innovation. I'd go so far to say that in many fields of work, excessive patents harm innovation.” He shares the study by Petra Moser 'Patents and Innovation: Evidence from Economic History' . The paper suggests that patents might not have anything to with innovation after all. Among the ...

Apple seeks over $2 billion for patent infringement from Samsung (Cached) 9.4.2014 DNA: Opinion
Samsung should pay about 2.191 billion dollars in damages to Apple for patent infringement, an expert for the iPhone maker has argued. Apple earlier said it wanted about two billion dollars, but the testimony marks the first time the precise total and the factors that went into the calculation have been revealed. According to CNET, Christopher Vellturo, an economist and principal at consultancy Quantitative Economic Solutions, said he reached the 2.191 billion dollars figure by calculating reasonable royalties and lost sales and profits. He noted the figure comes from evaluating the scale of the infringement, the time span and the head-to-head rivalry between Apple and Samsung. He added that the patents were key for making Samsung devices easier to use and more attractive to buyers. Vellturo said Samsung sold more than 37 million infringing devices. Apple is arguing that Samsung infringed on five of its patents for the iPhone, its biggest moneymaker, and that Apple is due two billion dollars for that ...
