Obama mentions inventors and patents in State of the Union

from IPWatchdog.com

President Barack Obama delivered the 2011 State of the Union Address to a live audience in the House Chambers at the Capitol. President Obama mentioned "innovation" repeatedly. The use of the "innovation" rhetoric is to be expected any more from our elected leaders, but it is typically little more than rhetoric. President Obama did use the word "patent" during his speech, but political leaders can also throw about the grossly overused term "intellectual property," with near reckless abandon, so it would not have been surprising to hear the term in the State of the Union. Of course, the term "intellectual property" is almost always used to refer to copyrights and trademarks, counterfeiting and piracy. "Intellectual property" is rarely, if ever, used by politicians to refer to patents, inventions and innovative technologies. more
