Arnold and Susan Lutzker Publish Article on Patents for Educators

The lead article in the Fall 2011 edition of the AIME newsletter by Arnold Lutzker and Susan Lutzker, “Patents:  A Brief Primer,” discusses the third prong of intellectual property protection (the other two being copyrights and trademarks) and their broad impact on the tools and processes of learning.  The article focuses both on legislative reform (the sweeping “America Invents Act” signed into law by President Obama on September 16); recent high-stakes lawsuits (such as the ongoing battle between Apple’s iPad and Samsung’s Galaxy to capture the tablet market); and big-dollar defensive patent strategies being adopted by major tech companies in the face of challenges that are certain to arise (for example, Google’s victory in a high-stakes bidding war to buy Motorola Mobility, a dedicated Android partner, for $12.5 billion).
