In Silicon Valley Bank’s Innovation Economy Outlook 2014 survey, we asked executives what they see in today’s patent system and what they think of different reforms Congress is considering. In this patent report, we’ve summarized what we heard from more than 1,000 executives of leading software, healthcare, hardware and cleantech companies across the United States. We also offer our views, as bankers who work closely with many of these companies, on the principles that should guide Congress as it moves forward. Among our Findings: Companies across the U.S. innovation economy use patents. Software companies are less likely to rely on the patent system. Most of the suits are coming from non-practicing entities. Download the Full Report (PDF)
