Measuring the Evolution of the Drivers of Technological Innovation in the Patent Record

Andrew Buchanan; Norman H. Packard; Mark A. Bedau Artificial Life, 2011

We argue that technology changes over time by an evolutionary process that is similar in important respects to biological evolution. The process is adaptive in the sense that technologies are selected because of their specific adaptive value and not at random, but this adaptive evolutionary process differs from the Darwinian process of random variation followed by natural selection. We find ...

  • Business Method Protection

    Under Section 273, it would be possible for a person who invents the business method after the invention date of the patent holder to successfully assert a defense, if that person had used the invention commercially one year before the effective filing date of the patent. Therefore, if you are contemplating the filing of a business method patent, it would be prudent to file the application at the earliest possible time, before the business method is made public, to prevent a subsequent user of the business method from asserting this defense. Also, under Section 273, courts in the future will be faced with the problem of defining whether a method is a method of doing business or whether the patent defines the means of carrying out the method of doing business.

  • Novelty, Infringement, and Other Searches

    Since one of the most important aspects of obtaining a patent on your invention is to compare your invention to the state of the prior art, the best way to gain an understanding of the content of the prior art is to conduct a novelty, or patentability search. Several types of searches are discussed: infringement search, state-of-the art search, and right-to-use search. Most search associates today use a computer database in conducting their searches.

  • Foreign Patent Protection

    With the advent of market globalization, your inventions will most likely be valuable in many countries outside your home country. Obtaining a patent in your home country does not provide patent protection in any other country, and unlike copyright protection, there is no world patent. A patent right is enforceable against an infringer only in the country which issues the patent. Patents must be obtained from the Patent Office, or equivalent government agency, in each of the countries where protection is sought.

  • Patent Application

    This chapter discusses what information goes into a properly prepared patent application, so you will be able to adequately review an application when presented for your review and comments prior to filing the application. We briefly summarize the history of patent application content, leading up to the present system and its requirements for a properly filed application. We also discuss the goals intended to be met in the preparation of a properly prepared application, the use of provisional patent applications, and how to conduct a rigid review of a patent application covering your invention.

  • Introduction: A Videogame Industry Primer

    Rank-and-file game developers bring videogames from concept to product, and yet their work is almost invisible, hidden behind the famous names of publishers, executives, or console manufacturers. In this book, Casey O'Donnell examines the creative collaborative practice of typical game developers. His investigation of why game developers work the way they do sheds light on our understanding of work, the organization of work, and the market forces that shape (and are shaped by) media industries. O'Donnell shows that the ability to play with the underlying systems -- technical, conceptual, and social -- is at the core of creative and collaborative practice, which is central to the New Economy. When access to underlying systems is undermined, so too is creative collaborative process. Drawing on extensive fieldwork in game studios in the United States and India, O'Donnell stakes out new territory empirically, conceptually, and methodologically. Mimicking the structure of vide games, the book is divided into worlds, within which are levels; and each world ends with a boss fight, a "rant" about lessons learned and tools mastered. O'Donnell describes the process of videogame development from pre-production through production, considering such aspects as experimental systems, "socially mandatory" overtime, and the perpetual startup machine that exhausts young, initially enthusiastic workers. He links work practice to broader systems of publishing, manufacturing, and distribution; introduces the concept of a privileged "actor-intra-internetwork"; and describes patent and copyright enforcement by industry and the state.

  • Introduction to Patents

Finally, we describe what a patent is not, atomic weapons inventions, and the U. S. Government's right to practice your patented invention.

  • Index

    Late nineteenth-century Britain saw an extraordinary surge in patent disputes over the new technologies of electrical power, lighting, telephony, and radio. These battles played out in the twin tribunals of the courtroom and the press. In Patently Contestable, Stathis Arapostathis and Graeme Gooday examine how Britain's patent laws and associated cultures changed from the 1870s to the 1920s. They consider how patent rights came to be so widely disputed and how the identification of apparently solo heroic inventors was the contingent outcome of patent litigation. Furthermore, they point out potential parallels between the British experience of allegedly patentee-friendly legislation introduced in 1883 and a similar potentially empowering shift in American patent policy in 2011. After explaining the trajectory of an invention from laboratory to Patent Office to the court and the key role of patent agents, Arapostathis and Gooday offer four case studies of patent-centered disputes in Britain. These include the mostly unsuccessful claims against the UK alliance of Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison in telephony; publicly disputed patents for technologies for the generation and distribution of electric power; challenges to Marconi's patenting of wireless telegraphy as an appropriation of public knowledge; and the emergence of patent pools to control the market in incandescent light bulbs.

  • Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI)

    In movie theaters across the country, there was a (p)reincarnation of sorts in 1999. Around the same time, the Department of Astronomy appointed a brand new chair in the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI). William ???Jack??? Welch was the first holder of the Watson and Marilyn Alberts Chair in SETI and his wife, Jill Tarter, figured that the Square Kilometer Array (SKA), will be powerful enough to detect the leakage into space from a standard terrestrial TV transmitter at a range of half a dozen light years. Therefore, any neighboring civilization with comparable TV transmitters would leak enough signal into space for detection by the SKA, even if it were not intentionally broadcasting for our benefit. That is why it is particularly fitting that the 1997 Electronic Frontier Foundation Award finally recognized the vital role their patent eventually played in the modem development of secure communications.
