Economic models based on exclusionary property rights are in their waning moments. With over 50 million patent documents in the world – the vast majority of them expired, abandoned, or useless defensive tools – the academic and econometric communities have been equally unable to substantiate a single empirical argument to maintain the current patent system. Thus, at last, the European Patent Office is publicly talking in terms of Global Patent Warming to describe a sense of crisis, and an urgent need for action. With the present global economic crisis upon us, this call invites society to invest wisely and decisively in sustainable and fair innovation models. This project aims at exactly that.
