Why then do others invest in patents? Some of the most common reasons are: To meet the targets met by the senior management About eighty percent among the large companies file...

Patent Trolling : Can’t Live With, Can’t Live Without!

This post was first published on March 9th, 2012. Patent Trolling is indeed a remunerative fad apart from being a 'rage'. It’s also turning out to be the easiest way to make quick bucks, many of those quick bucks rather. For once, it should probably be lauded for they have highlighted the largest of loopholes that companies seem to have over-looked on their march to success. However, what should also be observed in the midst of all of this is that - they also highlighted what a travesty the patent system has become these days. The company that does nothing gets...

How Many More Patents Would it Take to Make the World a Better Place to Live in?

This post was first published on July 30th, 2011. In a country like India where the sun is out for the major part of the day, I wonder if we are capitalizing enough on this abundant and sustainable source of energy, especially in a time when we are close to running out of conventional resources such as oil, gas, and coal. Harnessing this energy in order to make the surrounding environment a little more conducive for better living has become imperative. There has been some significant work in the field of green technologies, especially solar energy and wind energy and also subsequent...

All methods are therefore patentable unless they are expressly excluded under Section 3,...
