Why Pharmaceutical Firms Support Patent Trolls: The Disparate Impact Of Ebay V. Mercexchange On Innovation, Jeremiah S. Helm Oct 2006

Why Pharmaceutical Firms Support Patent Trolls: The Disparate Impact Of Ebay V. Mercexchange On Innovation, Jeremiah S. Helm

Michigan Technology Law Review

Before the unanimous decision in eBay v. MercExchange, patent holders were almost always granted an injunction against an infringer. In fact, the Federal Circuit, in deciding eBay, noted that, upon a finding of infringement, an injunction would issue unless there were extraordinary circumstances. The Court, in a brief opinion, disagreed with the Federal Circuit and explained that the injunction issue in a patent case must be analyzed under the traditional four-factor test.[...] Is the four-factor test fairer or better than the Federal Circuit's near-automatic injunction rule? It is certainly more difficult to administer a factor test as compared to ...


New Venture Innovation In Dynamic Markets, Alexander Mckelvie, Johan Wiklund Jun 2006

New Venture Innovation In Dynamic Markets, Alexander Mckelvie, Johan Wiklund

Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research

The important relationship between knowledge and innovation is well established in the literature. However, little is known about how new ventures’ acquisition, assimilation, transformation, and exploitation of knowledge (i.e., their absorptive capacity) affects innovation. We examine the role of the individual components of absorptive capacity on innovation on a sample of new firms in the Swedish telecom, IT, media, and entertainment sectors. Our results suggest that the direct effects of the components of absorptive capacity on innovation are more complex than previously anticipated or articulated in the literature. We also find that while the four components of absorptive capacity ...


Why Did Silicon Valley Grow Up Around Stanford University Rather Than Around Uc Berkeley? (Summary), Stephen B. Adams Jun 2006

Why Did Silicon Valley Grow Up Around Stanford University Rather Than Around Uc Berkeley? (Summary), Stephen B. Adams

Frontiers of Entrepreneurship Research

What makes one research university a more effective anchor of an entrepreneurial high-tech region than another? Those who seek to understand how entrepreneurial high-tech regions come into being need to understand the historical factors and critical paths that have led to success. Therefore, this paper explores why Silicon Valley grew up around Stanford University after World War II rather than around UC Berkeley.


Pathological Patenting: The Pto As Cause Or Cure, Rochelle Dreyfuss May 2006

Pathological Patenting: The Pto As Cause Or Cure, Rochelle Dreyfuss

Michigan Law Review

The Patent Act was last revised in 1952. The hydrogen bomb was exploded that year, vividly demonstrating the power of the nucleus; in the ensuing postwar period, the Next Big Thing was clearly the molecule. Novel compounds were synthesized in the hopes of finding new medicines; solid-state devices exploited the special characteristics of germanium and other semiconductors; as investments in polymer chemistry soared, advice to the college graduate soon boiled down to "one word ... just one word[:] ... Plastics." Over the next half-century, things changed dramatically. "Better living through chemistry" has begun to sound dated (if not sinister). Genomics and computer ...


The Effects Of Personal Innovativeness , Perceived Risk , And Computer Self -Efficacy On Online Purchasing Intent, Randall J. Boyle, Cynthia P. Ruppel Jan 2006

The Effects Of Personal Innovativeness , Perceived Risk , And Computer Self -Efficacy On Online Purchasing Intent, Randall J. Boyle, Cynthia P. Ruppel

Journal of International Technology and Information Management

The rapid growth of e-commerce makes it important for the success of companies to understand both the factors that facilitate and are barriers to these transactions. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to investigate the relationships between perceived Internet risk, personal innovativeness and computer/web self-efficacy, and online purchases intentions as three of these factors. Results indicate that perceived Internet risk, personal innovativeness and computer/web self-efficacy are all strongly related to online purchasing intentions. There is also a strong relationship between computer self- efficacy and personal innovativeness, two of the values-compatibility variables related to intention to purchase on-line ...

Accepting Exceptions?: A Comparative Approach To Experimental Use In U.S. And German Patent Law, Peter Ruess Jan 2006

Accepting Exceptions?: A Comparative Approach To Experimental Use In U.S. And German Patent Law, Peter Ruess

Marquette Intellectual Property Law Review

Experimental use is a keystone of research and innovation for some and obstacle in using a patent for others. In a genuine international field such as patent law, monitoring recent developments is best done in a comparative way. Particularly, the decision Merck v. Integra of the US Supreme Court and the new EU law, give reason to explore this field in more detail.
