On the latest episode of Banter, we talk all things patents! Timothy Lee, a reporter at the Washington Post, sits down to discuss where policy and patents meet. Are patents stifling innovation in the technology sector? What can companies do when they’re confronted with patent trolls? What are the solutions on the table for patent reform? Tim brings years of expertise covering the issue area. Fluent in both technology and patent policy, he gives a broad overview of the many issues that advocates and regulators are wrestling with. You don’t have to be an inventor waiting on a patent application to appreciate the importance of the topic. Patents policy is at the core of how our society thinks about innovation, entrepreneurship, and property rights. Enjoy!
