Beware of The Patent Bubble

"It seems that the race to patent a product has overshadowed the product itself." said Scott Cooper, CEO of the World Patent Family of Companies

World Patent Ratings, a specialized rating agency and expert network focused on intangible asset valuation, has issued a a new High Risk Report titled "Beware of the Patent Bubble." World Patent Ratings has been a pioneer in calling attention to the irrational valuation of intangible assets held on corporate balance sheets around the world.

"The numbers are clear. Intellectual property now accounts for over 38% of the U.S. economy, but interestingly only 12% of exports. If that’s not the start of a patent bubble forming, I don’t know what is." said Scott Cooper, CEO of the World Patent Family Companies, "It seems that the race to patent a product has overshadowed the product itself. I am not discounting the importance of patents, however, when almost 40% of the economy is about protecting the right to make a product (rather than the product itself), there is something wrong."

World Patent Ratings utilizes the planet’s largest specialized repository of open source intangible asset and patent data. The company's team of data scientists has used code from over hundreds of worldwide open data sources, including the Central Intelligence Agency, the Securities and Exchange Commission, Google, Yahoo, The New York Times, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, Amazon, Facebook, the US Census Bureau, the European Union, Pew Research Center, and the National Climactic Data Center.
