Societal Views On Patents
Legal scholars, economists, activists, policymakers, industries, and trade organizations have held differing views on patents and engaged in contentious debates on the subject. Critical perspectives emerged in the nineteenth century, and recent debates have discussed the merits and faults of software patents and biological patents.
These debates are part of a larger discourse on intellectual property protection which also reflects differing perspectives on copyright.
