Your September/October article “The Power of Patents” gives a very interesting outline of the operation of the patent system over the last two hundred years. The current emphasis being placed on intellectual property around the world is a reflection of just how important intellectual property, including patents, has become to the world’s economy.

We hope you enjoy our work.
