New Study Confirms Patent Assertion Is a Growing and Costly Burden on Innovation Ecosystem

When startup companies must spend time and money thinking about patent demands, they are not inventing and they are not expanding,” said Robin Feldman, Professor of Law & Director of the Institute for Innovation Law at the University of California Hastings.

Other study findings include:

*Patent assertions impact various industry sectors unevenly. Seventy percent of VCs identified IT as the industry sector most impacted by patent demands, followed by life sciences (30 percent) and clean tech (10 percent). Additionally, 60 percent of VC respondents reported that patent demands came from entities whose core activity is licensing or litigating patents.

*Defending against patent assertions is costly. Sixty percent of V
