About this Item

"This preliminary edition is issued with the special permission of the MIT Press which will, at a future date, publish the lectures in revised form. "Invention, patents, and innovation cannot be treated apart from their social, political, and economic environment, despite mechanistic courses given at law schools. Thus, to review the principles of patent law without delving into the interplay of many aspects of our society would be to discuss a theoretical, non-existent system. This book, therefore, is not addressed solely to engineers and applied scientists; some parts are addressed to lawyers, economists, businessmen, and politicians." Chapters on the origin and development of the American patent system, patent office and the courts, patent law, patents in action (the history of the basic telephone patent), the tights, obligations, and problems of inventors (employee-employer relations), the future of American patents, modernization of patent systems, court modernization for aiding the patent system and the law, in general and lastly a formula for economic decline. FINE- HARDCOVER, scarce. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 023951
