Peter S. Menell, Intellectual Property and the Law of Land, 30 Regulation 64 (2007)
The author expresses opinion on an essay by professor Richard Epstein on intellectual property and property rights movement. He says the professor acknowledges that governance of intellectual property involves a complex public policy balance that varies from real property governance. He stresses Epstein should agree that the uniform structure of patent law across all innovation may be a significant issue. He notes the demand for more adjustments to the patent system to distinguish among the various fields of inventive activity covered by patent law.
