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.
