Abstract

In recent years, innovation has been threatened by the United States legal system. Much of the blame can be attributed to the antitrust and intellectual property (IP) laws. This book seeks to encourage a reversal of this trend, offering ten revolutionary proposals, from pharmaceuticals to peer-to-peer software, to help foster innovation. The book illustrates the benefits of improving the patent system and incorporating innovation into copyright and antitrust law. It also dips into a rich business literature to import ideas on "disruptive innovation" and "user innovation." The book replaces the 20th-century view that the IP and antitrust laws are in conflict with a new 21st-century framework that treats them as collaborators. It also offers a comprehensive framework for the patent, copyright, and antitrust laws to promote innovation.
