A new booklet "Hacking the Patent System" makes recommendations for innovators


Electronic Frontier Foundation has published an electronic booklet “Hacking the Patent System: A Guide to Alternative Patent Licensing for Innovators”, 2016, by Marta Belcher and John Casey, from the Juelsgaard Intellectual Property and Innovation Clinic at Stanford Law School.  Elliot Harmon contributed the summary.
 
The strategies include the use of a Defensive Patent License Agreement (DPL), of which Twitter’s Innovation Patent Agreement is an example.  Another idea is patent litigation insurance, and still another is making patent portolios public.
