Google Tech Talk August 16, 2010 ABSTRACT Presented by Andrew W. Torrance. The study of law has traditionally focused on close scrutiny of judicial decisions, statutes, regulations, and scholarly articles. We offer an alternative approach: experimental law. The Patent Game is an interactive web application, built using Ruby on Rails®, designed to be a simplified model of the patent system. Using The Patent Game, one may experimentally explore how patent systems work. Groups of human players can compete or collaborate with one another to come up with valuable new inventions, and then patent, make, sell, license, and buy these inventions. Patent owners may even litigate against patent infringers. By programmatically controlling various parameters of patent law, The Patent Game enables rigorous experiments into the impacts of those parameters on both choices human players make and various metrics of patent system performance. We have conducted several experimental studies so far, sometimes with surprising results. Data from our first study suggest that a commons offering no patent protection may generate more innovation, productivity, and wealth than a patent system. Our latest study, completed in July 2010, suggests that a patent system in which infringement results in monetary damages (a "liability rule") may generate more innovation, productivity, and wealth than a patent system in which infringement results in an injunction (a "property rule"). Although The Patent Game is simplified compared to actual patent systems, it may point toward a potential future in which the choice of legal rules and processes are more strongly based on an experimental and scientific understanding of the forces at work in the law. Andrew W. Torrance joined the University of Kansas School of Law faculty in 2005. In 2009, he was named a Docking Faculty Scholar at KU, and a 2009/2010 Fellow in Law, Innovation, and Growth at the Searle Center at Northwestern Law School. Torrance received his Ph.D. in biology from Harvard University in 1997 and is a 2000 graduate of Harvard Law School. He earned his Bachelor of Science from Queen's University in Canada. In 2003, Torrance was named the Hrdy Visiting Professor of Conservation Biology at Harvard University, and taught Biodiversity: Science, Policy, and Law at Harvard University from 1999 until his arrival at KU. Torrance practiced biotechnology patent law at Fish and Richardson LLC, and then served as inhouse patent counsel at Inverness Medical Innovations. Torrance has presented his research in the United States, Canada, Finland, Scotland, England, France (at the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development), and Germany. His articles have been published in journals such as the Berkeley Technology Law Journal, the Columbia Science and Technology Law Review, and the Minnesota Journal of Law, Science & Technology. Since 2007, Torrance has run Biolaw: Law at the Frontiers of Biology, an annual conference that gathers leading scholars at KU Law to present their insights on the latest developments in biolaw. Torrance's research interests include intellectual property, patent law, innovation law, biotechnology, biolaw, food and drug law, biodiversity law, climate change law, and international environmental law.

CTV’s Executive Director Orin Herskowitz talks about the exciting world of patenting and licensing early-stage university technologies, including examples of scientific inventions, how patent decisions get made, and how license agreements are negotiated, both within Columbia and across the industry. In this lecture Orin discusses why patents are making headlines in recent years [2:09], what role universities occupy in this space [6:33], what is meant by an “invention” [8:38], what happens after a technology is licensed [12:17], why it’s hard for new technology to make it to the marketplace [15:35], why university technology transfer has an extra time crunch than a typical research environment [22:15], provisional patents [24:00], different types of licensing [26:20], the mission of Columbia Technology Ventures [31:35], the difference between a patent and an invention [34:10], key terms in licensing agreements [52:21], and balancing all parties’ objectives in licensing [56:30]. For those of you who are new to tech transfer, our core objective is to facilitate the transfer of inventions from academic research to outside organizations for the benefit of society on a local, national and global basis. Each year, CTV manages nearly 400 invention disclosures from faculty, 100 license deals and 15+ new start-ups. CTV currently has over 1200 patent assets available for licensing, across research fields such as bio, IT, cleantech, devices, nanotechnology, and material science. ABOUT THE SPEAKER: Orin Herskowitz is the Vice President of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer for Columbia Technology Ventures. Prior to joining CTV as Chief Operating Officer in early 2006, Orin spent seven years with the Boston Consulting Group's New York office and, before that, founded and managed a media services start-up company. Orin holds a BA from Yale University and an MBA from the Wharton School.
