Protecting Intellectual Property

"Intellectual property (IP) protection is a fundamental part of our nation's founding. The U.S. Constitution, establishing the only 'right' in its text, states that 'To promote the Progress of Science and useful Arts, by securing for limited Times to Authors and Inventors the exclusive Right to their Respective Writings and Discoveries.' Even Abraham Lincoln stated our patent system adds 'the fuel of interest to the fire of genius.' This Collection [from Kauffman eVenturing] covers the range of issues around how entrepreneurs can protect their company's IP. Upcoming Collections will cover related emerging issues surrounding IP protection, including open source IP and its impact on entrepreneurship."
