Epstein on Patents
By Michael Rappaport

Another interesting essay by Richard Epstein, this one on patents. Those not familar with the academic literature on patents might be amazed to discover that the great majority of acadmics seem exceedingly hostile to patents. Once again, Epstein swims against the current, arguing in favor of patents, but also advocating increased funding to the patent office.
