Patents: A License To Sue

Some believe a patent gives an inventor the right to manufacture their invention without any competition. The truth is a little bit more sobering. Patents really only give the owner the right to sue. If a patent owner doesn’t sue, anybody can use the technology. Robert J. Marks discusses patent law and artificial intelligence with attorney and author, Richard W. Stevens.
